Lyrics

VALLEY OF DECISION
Joel 3:14-21
(Chorus):
Run come and fall people take heed to His call, Valley of Decision. Valley of Decision. This is no game, people have to die in His name Valley of Decision. Valley of Decision.
Darkness it looms all around us, I find it hard to see. I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know whether I should stay or whether I should flee. People all around me seem, they seem to be so sad. I see them cry I hear them bawl I see their backs against the wall, I wish I could wipe away their tears.
(Pre Chorus):
There’s a Holy, a Holy hill, Holy Mount Zion, Holy, Holy Mount Zion (Heb 12:22). Just know that He’s the Lord your God in this Valley of Decision, Valley of Decision.
(Chat Chorus):
Even though I run through enough Hills and Valleys I fear no evil cause God is with me. Even though I run through enough Hills and Valleys Thy rod and staff they will comfort me (Psalm 23:4). (2x)
(Chorus)
(Pre Chorus)
(Chat Chorus)
Jah Great and dreadful day will soon come (Joel 2:11). Jah will pour out His mighty, mighty, mighty Spirit to all mankind (Acts 2:17). Through Him all creation, all creation was made (John 1:3). Those who call upon His name, Call on His name and you will be saved (Rom 10:13).
(Pre Chorus)
(Chorus)
(Chat Chorus repeated)
=================================

CAN’T STOP
Alleluijah! Can’t stop praising the Lord! I can remember when I was younger puffed up and full of pride. Well I needed no one, I had my own fun, then Jah came in and changed my life
(Chorus):
You know I can’t stop praising you Lord, You know I won’t stop praising You Lord (2x)
What a Joy it is to see all the things He’s done for me
(Chat Chorus):
I am singing alleluijah, Giving out thanks and praises to the Father
I am Singing alleluijah, Giving out thanks and praises to no other
I’m on the free road, Jah carry I load, onward and forward trod on. And I’m under His wing (Psalm 91:4), unto Him I sing songs of praise and Jubilee
(Chorus)
(Chat Chorus)
Mix it nice, Because I Praise the Lord in the sanctuary, nonstop I’m giving out praises unto thee.
Praise the Lord with the drum and the Bass, let everything with breathe give the Lord praise! (Psalm 150)
(Chat Chorus)
No need to worry, His yoke is easy (Matt 11:28-30), I cast my cares on Him (I Peter 5:7)
and I’m so excited, humbly delighted Heaven is my destiny
(Chorus)
(Chat Chorus)
Question! I ask who else upon the cross died for your sins? Who else from the grave rose up again? Praise the Lamb the Conquering Lion, the only Messiah He rules from Mount Zion.
(Chat Chorus)
(Chorus)
=================================

BEST FRIEND
I don’t really deal with religion so to say, I deal with relationship, Jesus is my best friend, to the end.
Tell your enemy and tell it to your friend, Go on, go up on the mountain and tell it again. Jesus is my best friend, unto the end man.
(Chorus):
Oh how I love the Lord, Jesus is my best friend, unto Him I’ll be true to the end, any time you knock me down, I will get up and follow Him again through the Spirit of God that He sends. (John 15:13-16) (repeat)
It is Him I shall follow, His name I’ll hallow, (Matt 6:9) whether suffering or pain I shall go against the grain. (Rom 12:2) It doesn’t matter what they see or what the outward appearance seems, like a salmon up the river I shall go against the stream. Seen?
(Chorus)
I have seen the light and counted the cost, made one choice, my past has been lost.
Settled the question with the conflict resolved, stepped up over the line and forsaken it all. Signed the covenant made the decision and agreed to the terms, met the author, joined the ranks, my bridges have been burned. There’s no looking back, I’m upon the attack with my eyes on the finish as I run on the track. (Heb 12:1-2, & ICor 9:24) Upon this long and narrow road!
(Chorus)
(Bridge):
I love Jesus He is Lord of all
I love Jesus and I will hear His call
I love Jesus when my back is against the wall
I love Jesus upon my knees I am going to fall
I love Jesus so come one and come all
I love Jesus come let us break down the wall
I love Jesus upon your knees you must fall
I love Jesus I am asking you to hear His call
(Chorus)
The road is narrow and the path is long (Mat 7:13-14) but as I follow (Mat 16:24) I’ve a companion. My best friend to the end, and I am not just pretending
With Him eternity I am going to spend
I want you to sing along
(Chorus)
(Repeat verse 2)
(Chorus)
(Bridge)
A road diverged in the wilderness. . . I took the one less traveled. I was the best decision of my life.
=================================

MY EYES
My eyes, my eyes, You touched my burning eyes.
Sitting on a corner trying to beg for a piece of bread. Oh God of King David I ask you why my life is so dread? You came unto me I felt your love pierce right through me. You touched me with your healing hands and you wept. Who are you man?
(Pre Chorus):
So I thank you friend for what you’ve done for me. Yes I thank you friend was blind but now I see.
(Chorus):
You filled my eyes with fire. My eyes were filled with fire. My eyes, my eyes were filled with fire. My eyes were filled with fire.
For so many years I’ve been cursed, afflicted with darkness. Giving me the gift of sight was a blessing that seemed otherwise hopeless. You’ve set my eyes on fire, given me my hearts desire. This compassion you have shown was an act of love, I’ve never known.
(Pre Chorus)
(Chorus)
I must admit I don’t know who you really are. Could it be you are the Son of God? Wherever you go that’s where I would like to be because you were the only one that was ever there for me. MY EYES ON FIRE!
Listen here man of mystery; where are you from? Where’s your destiny? You’ve shocked me with your burning vision I want to follow you on your mission.
(Pre Chorus)
(Chorus 2x)
=================================

MODERN DAY PHARISEE
(Chorus):
Judgment! Enough of them run up their mouths with their Bad lip service. Blah blah boom boom. They say that they are bonafide but them bones fe fry. They try to give you respect but they give you disrespect. Contangarous, Friendenemy. They are a big disturbance!
Modern Day Pharisee you didn’t have to judge me, Modern Day Pharisee you can do no wrong, no wrong, I said you can do no wrong, no wrong.
Look the way that you live your righteousness worn on your sleeve. You’re working so hard to be good to convince that you’ve done your duty. You are a pillar of society. A righteous man you claim to be. So well respected in your church, you know it’s by grace you’ve been saved and that not of your works Modern Day Pharisee.
(Chorus)
You tie your heavy load and throw it upon my back, and if I stumbled and fell to the floor you’d pursue with a viscous attack. You love to sit and accuse, and go so far to inflict abuse. Are you really out for blood? Don’t forget that we all fall short of the glory of God Modern Day Pharisee. Modern Day Pharisee you love to shine brightly. Modern Day Pharisee you didn’t have to judge me.
Boy you go on like you are article, but your artificial
Back stabber, Go have His mercy!
(Chat Chorus):
See the hypocrites and parasites bite. Plastic smile they love to shine bright. See the hypocrites and parasites bite. Concrete hearts. Watch this!
Jesus He turn over the tables, and He let loose the doves, it is time to rebuke, that means to encourage in love. Crack the whip and stop the bad lip service when you speak. What makes you go on acting like you’re meek.
(Chat Chorus)
Modern day pharisee, Concrete hearts! You give a tenth faithfully, and even fast maybe twice a week. Yet you judge me from the start? Don’t you know that the Lord only sees what is there in you heart Modern Day Pharisee. Modern Day Pharisee you love to shine brightly. Modern Day Pharisee you didn’t have to judge me.
They’re a brood of Vipers, they would pluck you off one by one just like a sniper. They lash out there tongue like a lethal weapon. They don’t deal with a relationship (with God) just religion.
=================================

SURRENDER
Long is the road to Mount Zion strong are the arms that carry me there
narrow is the road to Mount Zion
Each day is a battle here in Babylon and every moment that we live is just another day to struggle on. But still I find my rest under the strength of the Almighty. We must let go and let Jah lead the way surrender to His Majesty
(Chorus):
Surrender, surrender, surrender, surrender.
Long is the road to Mount Zion strong are the arms that carry me there
narrow is the road to Mount Zion so let us walk with nothing to fear
Once I was a slave but now I’ve been set free, and though I thought I was a free man, my soul was in captivity. Each moment I posses a single thought of Your love for me, my heart’s so full the joy just overflows, I know just where I want to be.
(Chorus)
Once I was a slave but now I’ve been set free. Each day, each day is a battle down hear in Babylon
(Chorus till fade)
=================================

SET ME FREE
(Bridge):
i am falling, falling, falling. Lord hear me calling, calling, calling.
i am descending and it seems never ending.
(Chorus):
Set me free hear me crying for freedom (2x)
No chains are on my feet, but i am not free, captive of my own devises down in slavery. Illusion is my key to not being found, but confusion it has led me to the ground. With my eyes so dry and my heart it’s so cold, i am full of compromise what was faith is now old. Entangled i am strangled by the pride of life, first it gives me a kiss and then it cuts like a knife. Oh my Lord tribulation and strife.
(Chorus)
i say the same prayer again and again, i ask forgiveness and then i fall into sin. i have performed the role and played the part. My conscience is seared and my heart it is hard. i do not do what i want to, i do what i don’t. Things the Holy Spirit lead me to i just won’t (Romans 7:15-20). my flesh is weak but my God He is strong. And yet i still keep falling into the wrong.
(Chorus)
Pick me up and dust me off i need your help, i pray lead me not into temptation (Matt 6:13) and then i lead in myself. i try to deny, i just want to justify, but i cannot run and hide from the truth that’s inside. i must face the convictions at war within me so i Make the confession down on my knee. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13), it is through JESUS CHRIST I receive victory (I Cor 15:56-57)
(Chorus)
I was falling, falling, falling. You heard me calling, calling, calling.
I was descending and it seemed never ending.
No chains are on my feet, and now I am free, released from the devises of mine own slavery. I cried to the Lord and He heard my plea, it was through the Father’s Son I received victory (I Cor 15:57). Oh my Lord I praise You for Your mercy.
=================================

JUNGLE INNA BABYLON
(Chat Chorus):
The Babylon system, yes it is going to have to fall (Rev. 18:2-)
Brick by brick come let us break down the wall
The Babylon system, yes it is going to have to fall
Inch by inch come let us see the wall fall
(my name is) Tansoback (and) I want you to hear my call
Oh my Lord (Jesus Christ) says come one and come all
(Repeat)
Permanently God will put the seven headed dragon into judgment (Rev. 17:3,7&9)
Permanently He will throw him into the fiery sea and then He’ll throw away the key (Rev. 20)
(Roots Chorus):
Babylon I am coming to warn them about your wicked system
Babylon I am coming to warn them with the book of revelation
Babylon I am coming to warn them about the abominations (Rev. 17:5)
Babylon I am coming to warn them about the victory of the Lamb
(Chat Chorus)
“Tsigiding ding ding ding digidigi ding digi ding ding ding ding ding”
The seven bowls of wrath they are full of Judgment (Rev. 16)
“..” Watch for the seven seals and the seven trumpets (Rev. 8:6-8)
Permanently God will put the seven headed dragon into judgment (Rev. 17:3,7&9)
Permanently He will throw him into the fiery sea and then He’ll throw away the key (Rev. 20)
(Roots Chorus)
(Chat Chorus)
He comes to mash and conquer; “The Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah (Rev. 5:5,6)
yes God comes to mash and conquer, yes the Son of Man He rules up the area
It is the wicked, wicked doom of Babylon, the Mother of Harlots and abomination (Rev. 17:5)
The wicked, wicked doom of Babylon, (Rev. 18:10) They’ll make war against the Lamb but the lamb shall overcome!
so “Burn Babylon, burn Babylon, burn Babylon, Babylon burn down,” (Rev. 17:17, & 18:9,18)
The Babylon system must burn straight down to the ground.
“…” The King of Kings Jesus Christ wears the crown (Rev. 17:14)
(Roots Chorus)
(Chat Chorus)
Babylonian (4x)
They’ll make war against the Lamb but the Lamb shall overcome (Rev. 17:14) cause He’s the Conquering Lion (Rev. 5:5,6)
They’ll make war against the Lamb but the Lamb shall overcome
Jah (Psalm 68:4 KJV) He rules from Mount Zion (Heb. 12:22, Rev. 14:1).
=================================

KEEP ON LOOKING UP
Hard times knocking at your door, you’ve never felt so alone before. You struggle each day to survive, and long to live the better life.
You’ve got to look up and see the dawning of His promises Jah word is revealing. You’ve got to reach out to one another for the time is short. . . .
(Chorus):
You got to keep on looking up (4x)
I see you in my day to day, but trials still they come my way. As for now I live by faith, but one day I will see your face
I’ve got to look up and see the dawning of His promises Jah word is revealing. I’ve got to reach out to one another for the time is short. . . .
(Chorus)
And no more crying, He’ll dry your eyes that day. And no more suffering, He’s gonna ease your pain. A world of laughter, hold on my people Jah time is now. (Chorus)
One day He’ll reclaim all of His children, and until that day (2x)

Don’t believe I could ever turn you away, No backslide, for now you’re here inside my heart this love is never gonna fade. Come on and hear what I say now, Now hear what the man says.

(Chat Chorus 2x)
It could be day, it could be night whether we fuss or whether we fight, come let us join together let us all unite. It could be day, it could be night whether we fuss or whether we fight, with the strength of Jah might. Okay!

Love sweet love for me, yes God He knows that this love it is real. Love sweet love for me, Only God knows the way that I feel. Love sweet love for me, even though they test me, my love it is real. Love sweet love for me, Only God knows the way that I feel.

Only the love of God could make a perfect man die on the cross. Only the love of God could make Him shed Him life blood for the lost (John 15:13). I want you to listen to the truth, I beg you brethren and don’t hesitate. I want you to open up your heart and let the love of the Lord penetrate.
(Chorus)
=================================

TIME
I see the wonders of creation here within my grasp. I cannot stop to smell the roses, don’t have the time got to move too fast. You’re seen in the horizon but the clouds are oh so dense. Living in these manic days can rob you of precious times of praise.
(Chorus):
Time, I need to spend more time. Time to give glory to You. Time, I need to spend more time, just a little more time to spend with You
When was the last time that I heard you speak through the wind that whispers words? This hectic lifestyle isn’t what you want for me, I’d slow down if I felt I really could. Time it keeps on giving if I give it half a chance. Living in these manic days can rob you of precious times of praise.
(Chorus)
I really have no good excuses, you’ve given me the breath of life. The least I could do is sip this cup with you, Drink up your love alleviate the strife.
(Chorus)
Just a little, just a little more time. (repeated)
Got to, want to, need to spend more time with you.
Got to, want to, need to spend more time. (repeated)
=================================

HIM DIE FI YUH
Lord have mercy, Me beg you follow me, This is a serious thing yall
(Chorus):
Said Him die for you, said Him die for me, said Him die for you, said Him die for we
Come down Christafari!
I woke up this morning giving thanks and praise, feeling the presence of the Lord. Yes Ite! I prayed for forgiveness and I prayed for His guidance, I prayed for a bright and sunny day.
(Pre Chorus):
It’s so nice to know that your forgiven, and I just can’t wait for us to meet in heaven
(Chorus)
Lord I praise the Lord in the morning, and God in the evening too, and any time I read the Bible God tells me what to do. Jesus Christ, yes He died upon a tree. Redemption He set I man free. And three days later He rose from the grave, (I Cor 15:3-4) it is only through the name of Jesus are you saved (Acts 4:14, Eph 1:19-23, Phil 2:6-11), because I chat about Jehovah, Lord God Messiah, Jesus is my Savior, there is no other.
It’s so good, the love He’s given us, Niceness everytime Guaranteed, paying the price on the cross. Redemption song. We don’t have any condemnation (Romans 8:1), only sanctification (Romans 15:16) breaking the chains of the law (Romans 6:14, 7:6).
(Pre Chorus)
(Chorus)
Lord I praise the Lord in the morning, and God in the evening too, and any time I read the Bible God tells me what to do. After Jesus He rose from the grave 500 people they saw where he was, (I Cor 15:4-8) and then the Lord He ascended into the sky (Acts 1:9-11) and He is going to come back like a thief in the night (Matt 24:42-44) , because I chat about Jehovah, Lord God Messiah, King Jesus is my Savior, there is no other.
(Chorus 2x)
Jesus your kingdom is rising, You paid the price on the cross and given I new life everlasting. God Knows!
Immanuel your kingdom is rising, You rose from the grave and filled the all of us with blessing.
