a Rastafarian Prayer...

Princes shall come out of Egypt,
Ethiopia shall stretch forth
her hand unto God. Oh thou God
of Ethiopia, thou God of divine
majesty, thy spirit come within our
hearts to dwell in the path of righteousness.
That the hungry be fed,
the sick nourished, the aged protected,
and the infant cared for. Teach us
love and loyalty as it is in Zion.

*July 23 marks the birth of
His Imperial Majesty
Emperor Haile Selassie
King of Kings,
Lord or Lords,
Conquering Lion of the tribe of Judah

*Burning Spear: Jah no dead (live)
