All Ye

Song for you. I like his attitude, his hat, his message, his song writing that draws on both old and new African-American oral tradition, and the fact he says "holler at yo boy." Who says that!? =)

All ye heavy laden
All ye heavy hearted
All ye heavy-burdened
oh, come.
The Lord will give you rest.
Yes he will.
Oh, come.
He will give you rest.

Oh come, and be healed.
Come, and be filled
Oh Come, and be healed
By the Spirit of the Lord.


  1. I think the only way it could be improved is with a twelve-string guitar and a Leadbelly growl bridge in there somewhere. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This was so great to listen to this morning! I'm going to share it with my friends here. Thanks for sharing with me :)

  3. Sounds like the final countdown - always painful - but also opening up new opportunities. I've loved your blog and hope you won't abandon it. And, while I'm at it - bon voyage! Aunt Lou Ann
