MLK

Let us remember…

My favorite part is the quotation of Isaiah 40:4-5
“I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.”

One man come in the name of love
One man come and go
One come he to justify
One man to overthrow

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

One man caught on a barbed wire fence
One man he resist
One man washed on an empty beach.
One man betrayed with a kiss

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love

(nobody like you…)

Early morning, April 4
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride

In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love
In the name of love
What more in the name of love…

Sleep
Sleep tonight
And may your dreams
Be realized
If the thunder cloud
Passes rain
So let it rain
Rain down him
So let it be
So let it be

Sleep
Sleep tonight
And may your dreams
Be realized
If the thundercloud
Passes rain
So let it rain
Let it rain
Rain on him

  1. How long ’til the day
    When freedom rings from every mountainside?
    O beautiful symphony
    When all of God’s children
    shall sing
    “Thank God Almighty
    we are free at last!”

    How long, O LORD?
    Thy will be done.

  2. True that…

    Imagine if Desmond Adolphus Dacres was still around today. Reggae would be different {see-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desmond_Dekker}.

    Imagine if “Screaming Mimes” were around today…or “Static Memory”…or “Demortri”…or “The Kesai Gebre-Selassie Jah Experience”
