Days goes into evening, yeah ya
Night fades away
I see a bright sunshine in every morning
Lord then a shower of rain
Give thanks and praise, give thanks and praise

I see Jah glory in the morning sun
I see Jah glory when the day is done

A little bit of it can be sweet
when you ain't got plenty
Don't drown yourself now
Don't drown yourself now
In too much honey

You wake up early every morning
Worrying about your earthly possessions
Don't make it hold ya
Don't make it hold ya
In these obsessions

I see Jah glory in the morning sun
I see Jah glory when the day is done

I see Jah glory in the morning sun
I see Jah glory when the day is done

This is a very worthy, cosmic, and totally infectious groove that can stay in the brain for a very long time. I like it; I like it a lot. Jah Glory
This MAY not be "proper" reggae but it always gives me a really big boost whenever I hear it. Whatever style of music it qualifies as, to me it is a beautiful and uplifting song with great spirit. And a good solid beat.
Reggae-wise, I'm a snob who doesn't usually react react to anything but Marley, but this is creative and refreshing.

Amen Brother.  Maybe the best ever..

I love this so much. Not a fan of reggae at all but THIS melodic kind of reggae sounds just wonderful at my ears. Fond of "96° in the shade", live version, too.
Still a 9 for me.

That's deep bro..
A solid 7 on first listen for me. Once again RP introduces me to music I've missed.
Nice to not see the usual silly complaints about anything religeous in a song's lyrics for once.

Yep, I'll second that. I've been subbed to Pete Cogle's podcast for a couple of years now and have heard an astonishing variety of dub to suit all tastes. Some dub isn't reggae at all (for instance, Celt Islam, Natural Dub Cluster) and has a highly eclectic range of influences - 'world dance' might be a better label. And for the most part dub artists make their work available for free under Creative Commons.
Looks like a shared UK interest dub-wise.... will give Pete Cogle a try, you might also enjoy http://radio.rightonscales.com which plays constant reggae/dub, no adverts or even station ID's... at present a whole 68 listeners world-wide. Was a constant companion before I found the RP light!
