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

There's a difference between being a snob and being closed-minded...
Great song, great album !!!

             
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.

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 https://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!

I am sure you will find as much variation in the genre as you like - and it is all recent stuff.

Awesome, great to hear this... had some of these Third World albums back in the early 80s college days. (on vinyl of course).  Don't think I've heard them since.  
will be leaving work in 3 hours for 17days of holiday. this song gets me in the right mood! thanks
I like the font on the album cover. Nothing else.

PJB, I appreciate your entertaining and enlightening comments, but wondering how you can compare the (to my ears) limited rhythmic and melodic variation of reggae, at least what we hear on RP, with the range of any of the other genres you cite.

Examples, please - I'm always ready to learn something.

Nice choice Bill.
I have been a big Third World fan since the early 80's.
You people who don't like reggae have no soul.
Have you been to jamaica? Then you know that this music is theirs. But live like they sing in their songs is to difficult for them. But who from the other artists does that!?
The music is great.

That's pretty ignorant. Third World have been going for a long old time. I remember listening to them back in the 80s. There's nothing "pseudo ethnic" about them. PC "morons" might or might not buy their stuff as a fashion statement, but that's not the band's fault. They're the real deal. I don't go a bundle on them myself because of their heavy-duty religion, same as I don't like Songs of Praise, but I'd never criticise their authenticity.

Are you dissing an entire genre? Or is that a type-oh and you meant "Reggae is the shit"?

By the way 'ttttttttttttt' makes no sense other than you got a shitty keyboard.

As for a suggestion, look up Burning Spear, you might like.

What a riot. I love this cover. Marketing? Maybe... I doubt it... but who cares? What a hoot. Lighten up dudes... it aint that serious. Denmark? Lived there for three years. Don't get it.. but again who cares? Lite it up dudes.

For the same reason other music gets low ratings. People don't like it and/or feel like they're hearing too much of it. Not everyone has the same musical tastes. For me, occasional reggae is okay, but I feel that it's generally overplayed on RP compared to other "world music" (aka non-American) genres. I don't hear much Samba, Beijing Opera, monks chanting, etc. So why the heavy reggae rotation?

In an attempt at an answer: cultural differences sound like a fair explanation? As I regarded my music collection a while back, I noted that much of what I have is 'white boy rock': it has never been a conscious decision, it's just what I like and have grown up with. There are many types of music outside of my culture I just don't 'get', and I'm sure people from the cultures which originated that music enjoy it and may well have a similar distaste for what I like. So why does RP have a low rating for reggae songs? Have a look at the listenership (horrible word, sorry): is it a perfectly balanced mixture of all of this planet's races and cultures? I doubt it. So when it comes to ratings, especially of the 'world music' et al that gets played here, I would try to consider the demographic: maybe a 5 for a reggae song is the equivalent of 7 for an alt rock track. As for the song, after all that? Enjoyed it up to the singing and standard reggae beat kicked in. Ick, thereafter.

Funny you should mention it. We have been having a running discussion on RP about this subject, and there is definitely an "anti Reggae" faction out there in RP land. Now, I would not call them racists or imply any ill motive, it is just that some people just don't like reggae. Speaking personally, I love reggae. My argument is that if you don't understand reggae, then you need to go to a Caribbean island, sit in the sun and drink cold drinks to understand it. I saw Third World last March at Foxy's on Jost Van Dyke, British Virgin Islands. Foxy has a reggae festival each year, and it was AWESOME! Third World is treated like royalty down there, and they deserve it, because they put on a great show. My description does not do it justice.....
I like it mon. What better music to sit in the sun, have a cold one, burn one and relax to? Reggae has the ability to make one feel at ease, even without smokin the ganja. It is fairly derivative of itself, seeing that so many reggae tunes have the same tempo and beat, but hey, you can say that about a lot of other styles of music too.

Well, I'm a fan of reggae, and I rate other tunes high, but to me, this tune is just plain pedestrian. Now, put on a great track by Toots, Jimmy Cliff, Steel Pulse or Mutabaruka and I'll give it a higher rating. But that's just me. I do know people who love all sorts of music but just can't take Reggae. Maybe some grad student who listens to RP should try to do a study on this. (joking)

You're wrong. Even Bob Marley receives low ratings. Go figure.

Unrelated to this song, but I think you make a good point. The rating system here seems to push one to giving 8, 9, 10 to songs one likes, and 1,2,3 to songs one does not like. But the 4,5,6,7 range is for songs you like but not as well as others. Those rankings seems underused. Reminds me of grade inflation in college.
Doesn't this sound similar to 96 Degrees in the Shade in certain parts?

I'm pretty sure of my own open-mindedness. I'm even more sure of what I do and don't like. I dont' like reggae. I didn't say it was bad, I simply don't like it. There are a lot of other things in this world that I don't like that you may. BFD. Deal with it.

One of the great reggae songs ever done. Some may not like reggae, though. I give it a 9.
Some of us need more exposure to reggae.
as for most reggae or reggae sounding music.. I didn\'t rate it cause its not my thing.. but seems to be others... it wasn\'t bad though.. didn\'t make me twinge as much to turn the dial as most reggae does.. :)
damn. i had to change the channel.
I do not know about this one.
