Album Description

Conceived at a church youth camp in 1989, Christafari was birthed within the Christian church. Their first album, “Reggae Worship Volume One” was the first fruits of the band, an offering of worship for the Body of Christ. Since then the band has recorded three albums. But none of these records have been so effective in leading an individual into the presence of the Lord as this heartfelt project.

The highlight of this album is the new and different twist put to many favorite praise and worship songs such as, “Praise the Name of Jesus,” “Majesty” and “Lord I lift your name on High”. Much of the album is original, yet it contains many familiar choruses over original rhythms done “Inna Reggae Stylee”. Its initial success as a first in it’s genre spawned other imitations by other producers, bands and companies. Yet none met with the success that Reggae Worship had in sales, not to mention the fact that it put Christafari on the map in the CCM industry.

Ministry Statement:

Since it’s inception, Christafari has set out to evangelize the world and to edify the Body of Christ by leading them into a new and refreshing style of worship.

 

Lyrics

ONCE A MAN AND TWICE A CHILD
(BORN AGAIN)
I PRAISE JESUS STRAIGHT FROM MY HEART
I PRAISE JESUS AND WE SHALL NEVER PART
I PRAISE JESUS STRAIGHT FROM MY HEART
STRAIGHT FROM THE BEGINNING YES STRAIGHT FROM DE START
ONCE A MAN AND TWICE A CHILD
WELL THE SINFUL NATURE IS FUN JUST FOR A LITTLE WHILE
ONCE A MAN AND TWICE A CHILD
PROGRESS A LONG WHILE IN THE CHRISTIAN STYLE
YOU ARE BORN, BORN, YES YOU ARE BORN AGAIN
SO YOU MUST TELL IT TO YOUR ENEMIES AND TELL IT TO YOUR FRIENDS
YOU ARE BORN, BORN, YES YOU ARE BORN AGAIN
AND THIS RELATIONSHIP IS PERMANENT
JUST LIKE HOW YOU WHERE BORN FROM YOUR MOTHER
ONCE A MAN AND TWICE A SUCKLING
YOU MUST BE LIKE A LITTLE CHILD
BECAUSE YOU ARE NEW BORN IN YOUR CHRISTIANITY
SO YOU MUST FLASH IT FLASH IT IN THE CHRISTIAN STYLE
JUMP UP AN DOWN AND ACT LIKE YOUR WILD
SO YOU MUST FLASH IT FLASH IT IN THE CHRISTIAN STYLE
YOU HAVE COME BEFORE THE FATHER AND HAVE BEEN RECONCILED
ALL OF THE ANGELS REJOICE BECAUSE OF YOUR CHOICE
YOU BELIEVE IT IN YOUR HEART AND CONFESS IT WITH YOUR VOICE
ALL DE ANGELS REJOICE BECAUSE OF YOUR CHOICE
YOUR SALVATION IS SWEETER THAN SUGAR AND SPICE
PRAISE THE NAME OF JESUS
PRAISE THE NAME OF JESUS
HE’S MY ROCK, HE’S MY FORTRESS, HE’S MY DELIVERER
IN HIM WILL I TRUST
PRAISE THE NAME OF JESUS
CHORUS
YOU ARE BORN, BORN, YES YOU ARE BORN AGAIN
SO YOU MUST TELL IT TO YOUR ENEMIES AND TELL IT TO YOUR FRIENDS
YOU ARE BORN, BORN, YES YOU ARE BORN AGAIN
YOU WERE PREDESTINED YOU ARE PART OF GOD’S PLAN
YOU ONCE WERE A SINNER BUT NOW ARE A SAINT
SO DON’T BOTHER TO KEEP ON SINNING AT THE SAME TYPE OF RATE
YOU ONCE WERE A SINNER BUT NOW ARE A SAINT
SO DON’T BOTHER FUSSING AND FIGHTING I DON’T WANT TO HEAR COMPLAINTS
YOU ARE A NEW CREATION YES IN GOD’S SIGHT
YOU ONCE LIVED IN THE DARKNESS BUT YOU STEPPED INTO DE LIGHT.
SO BE THE SALT AND THE LIGHT THE FRUIT THAT IS RIPE
SO THEY DON’T SEE YOU THEY SEE THE SPIRIT THAT’S INSIDE
JESUS CHRIST GOD’S SHINING LIGHT REDEEMED US UPON THE CROSS IT IS FOR OUR SINS THAT HE DIED
JESUS CHRIST GOD’S SHINING LIGHT HEALED US UPON THE CROSS AND HE GAVE US NEW LIFE
PRAISE THE NAME OF JESUS
PRAISE THE NAME OF JESUS
HE’S MY ROCK, HE’S MY FORTRESS, HE’S MY DELIVERER
IN HIM WILL I TRUST
PRAISE THE NAME OF JESUS
#1, #2, #3, #4.
NONE OF THEM CAN DO IT LIKE JESUS MY LORD
#1, #2, #3, #4.
CHATTING CONSCIOUS LYRICS ABOUT JESUS MY LORD.
ONCE A MAN AND TWICE A CHILD
WELL THE SINFUL NATURE IS FUN JUST FOR A LITTLE WHILE
ONCE A MAN AND TWICE A CHILD
PROGRESS A LONG WHILE IN THE CHRISTIAN STYLE
ONCE A MAN AND TWICE A CHILD
JUMP UP AN DOWN AND ACT LIKE YOU ARE WILD
ONCE A MAN AND TWICE A CHILD
YOU NEED TO BE A DISCIPLINE CHILD
ONCE A MAN AND TWICE A CHILD
JUST LIKE AN EGG MAKE SURE THAT YOU DON’T SPOIL!
ONCE A MAN AND TWICE A CHILD
YOU HAVE COME BEFORE THE FATHER AND YOU’VE BEEN RECONCILE
ONCE A MAN AND TWICE A CHILD
MY LYRICS ARE PURELY BIBLICAL
ONCE A MAN AND TWICE A CHILD

TO THE LIGHT OF DAY
FATHER, SPIRIT, SON PLEASE GUIDE US

CHORUS:
GIVE THANKS UNTO THE FATHER
GIVE THANKS UNTO THE SON
GIVE THANKS TO THE HOLY OF HOLES
WOE THE HOLY ONE
AND LIKE A TREE PLANTED BY THE RIVERS OF WATER
I SET FORTH MY ROOTS, MY ROOTS, MY ROOTS UNTO THIS WATER
AND GROW, GROW, GROW IN THE SPIRIT
AND UNDERSTAND THE WAYS OF TRUTH AND LIGHT
JAH WORD THE POWER TO HEAL YOU
HEALTH AND STRENGTH AND LOVE AND LIFE
AND YOU KNOW IN DUE SEASON
SO STRONG AND FIRM YOUR FRUIT SHALL BE
AND TASTING SWEET AS HONEY
HOLY
I AM GIVING ENOUGH THANKS UNTO THE FATHER, GIVING ENOUGH THANKS TO THE SON
I SAID ALMIGHTY JAH JAH YESHUA THE HOLY ONE
I AM GIVING ENOUGH THANKS UNTO THE FATHER, GIVING ENOUGH THANKS TO THE SON
I SAID JESUS CHRIST YES HE IS THE ONLY ONE
HE WAS BORN OF A VIRGIN IN BETHLEHEM
WITH HIS 12 DISCIPLES HE WALKED ON THE LAND
HE MADE HIS TRIUMPHAL ENTRY INTO JERUSALEM
FOR THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER JUDAS BETRAYED THE SON OF MAN
THEN HE FULFILLED THE PROPHECY, THE PASSOVER LAMB
WHEN HE HUNG UPON THE CROSS THAT IS THE CRUCIFIXION
THREE DAYS LATER THAT IS THE RESURRECTION
FORTY DAYS LATER IS THE ASCENSION
THE PENTECOST, THE HOLY SPIRIT UPON THE LAND
IT IS IN YOU AND IT IS IN I MAN.
I AM GIVING ENOUGH THANKS UNTO THE FATHER, GIVING ENOUGH THANKS TO THE SON
I SAID ALMIGHTY JAH JAH YESHUA THE HOLY ONE
I AM GIVING ENOUGH THANKS UNTO THE FATHER, GIVING ENOUGH THANKS TO THE SON
I SAID JESUS CHRIST YES HE IS THE ONE AND ONLY ONE
==============================================

THE BLOOD OF JESUS
YOU GAVE YOUR BODY
PIERCED THROUGH FOR ME
YOU GAVE YOUR BLOOD
POURED OUT FOR ME
FATHER, YOU GAVE YOUR SON
A SACRIFICE FOR ME
I FALL DOWN TO MY KNEES
LORD HAVE MERCY ON ME
HEAL ME, CLEANSE ME, CLEANSE ME
WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS
WASHES WHITE AS SNOW
ON THE CROSS, MY JESUS
YOU GAVE YOUR LIFE FOR ME
POUR THE BLOOD OF JESUS OVER ME
==============================================

DANIEL 7:13-14
“IN MY VISION AT NIGHT I LOOKED , AND THERE BEFORE ME WAS ONE LIKE A SON OF MAN, COMING WITH THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN. HE APPROACHED THE ANCIENT OF DAYS AND WAS LED INTO HIS PRESENCE. HE WAS GIVEN AUTHORITY, GLORY AND SOVEREIGN POWER; ALL PEOPLES, NATIONS AND MEN OF EVERY LANGUAGE WORSHIPPED HIM. HIS DOMINION IS AN EVERLASTING DOMINION THAT WILL NOT PASS AWAY, AND HIS KINGDOM IS ONE THAT WILL NEVER BE DESTROYED.” DANIEL 7:13-14
