Peter Tosh - Creation Lyrics

(King of Kings, hallelujah)
(Lord of Lords, hallelujah)
(King of Kings, hallelujah)
(Lord of Lords, hallelujah)

In the beginning was the Word
And the Word was with Jah
And the Word was Jah

In the beginning Jah created the heaven and the earth
Then he created man of his own likeness and image
Gave unto man wisdom, knowledge, overstanding

Jah is my life and my strength
So whom shall I fear
He is a shield upon my right and my left hand
Jah is my keeper

Jah is my light and my salvation
So whom shall I fear
He is my guide throughout this Creation
So whom shall I be afraid
Jah is my keeper

Jah is my guide
In my resting and my rising
So whom shall I fear
He is my guide when I step out and forward
So whom shall I be afraid
Jah is my keeper

Jah is my guide
When Philistines come down upon I
So whom shall I fear
He is my guide when my enemies come to devour I
So whom shall I be afraid
Jah is my keeper

Jah is my guide
From the pestilence of darkness
So whom shall I fear
He is my guide from the vampires of hell
So whom shall I be afraid
Jah is my keeper

Jah is my health and my strength
So whom shall I fear
He is a shield upon my right and my left hand
So whom shall I be afraid
Jah is my keeper

    This may sound weird coming from a white non believer(atheist),but i feel if you're going to get involved with religion/reincarnation Rastafari is the most reasonable thing to believe roll a big ganja spliff and light it praise Jah Cannabis: the least he could do
    Unfortunately it is Still a master/slave relationship/mentality if there is a god[JAH] What kind his he indifferent at best if there was ever a time for divine intervention "for god to come down and stop the bullets"like discussed in pulp fiction Kingston,Jamaica 1987 was it! But no he always kills the good guys and let's the demons run a muck!

  76. Tanya Morris


  77. Dahlia Wedderburn

    Too often a man has to die for people to recognize how great he was. Peter Tosh was one of the greatest. He was a man of truth, and all things that was good and pure. He truly did not get the credit he deserved. Peter had no tolerance for foolishness. I really miss this man. This song still gives me the chills when I hear it after so many years. Just grateful to know that I can still listen to his music.


    Too often Too soon

  80. David Snake Doe

    in this song Peter reached the divine.
    That's why he's been the best, to me.
    He went over the human mind, the human feelings...he was superior.
    He was divine. 

    He is my health and my strength 
    so whom shall I fear ?
    He's a shield upon my right and my left hand
    so whom shall I be afraid ?

    Carl Cavallier

  84. Threefoot McMillan

    Just listen to the Interview with Marlene Peter Tosh' wife, married in Nigeria.I would encourage everyone to take an attentive listen,her memory has not fade away from the truth although she said the shot in her head give her memory lost at times.Beautiful Interview with Mutabaruka.Marlene's heart and soul was and Is in the correct place. This week on the 19th October as we celebrate Tosh's birthday let's remember the sister Marlene,many Important people around the incident has lost the respect.

  85. TheBrigidAvalon

    As a '70s teenager growing up in St. John's, Newfoundland, I entered a local radio contest and won an album entitled 'Bush Doctor' and was thus introduced to Peter Tosh.......our nations share far more than rum and salted cod............Divine Intervention........Jah is my Keeper!
