Intentions - Christafari










Your best friends, your best friends, (Lord) can be your worst enemy.
For real. They are grudgeful. They carry enough baggage. You know the things that you hold inside, they distort your vision.
And no man can tell another man what the next man is thinking about.
Neither can you know the next man’s intentions. You see man, him focus upon the outward appearance too much, but God deals with the heart.

Chorus: How do you judge me and not look inside my heart? How can you tell I have a bad intentions? How do you judge and not look inside my heart? Only Jah Jah knows my true motivations. (2x)

For six years we have been the best of friends, a partnership that would last to the end. And then you think that I am just playing pretend. It is all that I want is this friendship to mend. A chain is a strong as the weakest link. I can lead you to the water but I can’t make you drink. To force you that is not my desire but I have to stop you from running into the fire! Lord.

Chorus:

Only Jah Jah, only Jah Jah, only Jah, only Jah.
Jah
A friend in need is a friend indeed. What has be it has got to be. A silent river it always run deep. All of them talk but talk is cheap. From (when) you see my face you know my description but you don’t see my heart nor my intentions. Unto the Bible I have to stay true, a man has got to do what a man has got to do Woy!

Chorus: (2x)

Restoration, restoration, all that I am searching for is reconciliation. Restoration, restoration, Lord! Lord!

Lord Have Mercy woy! We shared the same burdens, frustration and rage. Yet you want to judge this book by the front page. Render your heart and not your garment, I thought that your trust it would be sufficient. I know in the past I have made some wrong moves with my track record, I guess I (will) have to prove that my hands and my heart were pure and clean in Jah sight. I only wanted what was biblically right. Woy! Oh Lord, In Jah sight.

How do you tell me that I am wrong inside my heart? How do you tell me that I have bad intentions? How do you judge me but not look inside my heart? Only Jah Jah only Jah. Jah Jah know. Only Jah Jah know my true motivations. Only Jah Jah know my true heart’s intention. Only Jah Jah know my true motivations. Only Jah Jah know my true heart’s intention. Lord unto you... My heart, my heart, my heart cries open for you. What else can I do? (It) cries open for you (2x)

Restoration, restoration, I praise the Lord for this reconciliation. Reconciliation, reconciliation, woy, ya, ya!




I Holy One - Christafari










See the light shining
Filling up the sky
Jah light is that sun shine
Bringing light to all dark places
The truth must be revealed
To the light of day
Father, Spirit, Son please guide us
As we travel on our way

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

Give A Little One Love - Christafari










Give a little, give a little one love everyone, I Cor. 13:4-8

Is there something we can give away
and never hope to ever get a fair return
A love so pure is with us everyday
I pray one day all of God's children will learn

Well you know that love is patient
and you know that love is kind
Don't let there be no hesitation
When you give that love let your love light shine

Chorus:
Give a little, give a little one love everyone
give a little, give a little one love under the son (2X).
scabadi babadoo bom bom bidely bom skeng! Don't you know it is our love we have to send yall?

The only way to change this world my friend
I say love will bring us to a better day
We just can't hold back from this hurting land
we've got to give a little one love come what may

Don't you know that love will never fail
it's always faithful and true
Come on and give that love inside your heart
as the Father gave to you.

(Chorus)

One love, one heart, one God, one destiny, one love, one heart, give some one love

(I Cor 13:4-8) Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always hopes, trusts, protects and perseveres. Love never fails It lasts throughout the years. So don't you know that when push it comes to shove, unto the Father you must give a little love.

I Got to "Keep on Lookin Up" keep "My Eyes" to the sky. To "Holy Mount Zion" where some day I'll "Fly", unto my "Majesty" it was for me that "Him Die" upon Calvary I heard His "Spirit Cry", "My Best Friend to the End", You know them "Crucify".

But I can't buy a reel, I can't find no pale, I can't by a hook and I can't afford a knife. (They say) you have to beat the system before it beats you, yet we are already black and so blue.
