"Forever Loving Jah" as written by and Bob Marley....
Woah-oh, ya-ya-ya-ya, oy-oh
Yeah-yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
Oh (we'll be forever loving Jah)
(We'll be forever loving Jah)

Some, they say, see them
Walking up the street
They say we're going wrong
To all the people we meet
But-a we won't worry
We won't shed no tears
We found a way
To cast away the fears, forever, yeah

(We'll be forever loving Jah) we'll be forever
(We'll be forever loving Jah) forever, yes
And forever (we'll be forever loving Jah) there'll be no end

So, old man river
Don't cry for me
I've got a running stream
Of love, you see
So, no matter what stages
Oh stages, stages, stages they put us through
We'll never be blue
No matter what rages
Oh rages, changes, rages they put us through
We'll never be blue
We'll be forever, yeah

(We'll be forever loving Jah) we'll be forever
(We'll be forever loving Jah) forever, and ever
Yes, and forever (we'll be forever loving Jah) 'cause there is no end

'Cause only a fool
Lean upon, lean upon his own misunderstanding, oh, yeah
And then what has been hidden
From the wise and the prudent, been revealed to the babe and the suckling
In everything, in every day, I say, yeah

(We'll be forever loving Jah) we'll be forever
(We'll be forever loving Jah)

'Cause just like a tree
Planted, planted by the rivers of water
That bringeth forth fruits
Bringeth forth fruits in due season
Everything in life got its purpose
Find its reason
In every season, forever, yeah

(We'll be forever loving Jah) we'll be forever
(We'll be forever loving Jah) on and on and on
(We'll be forever loving Jah) we'll be forever, yes, yes, we'll be forever
(We'll be forever loving Jah)

    General CommentProbably my favorite post-breakup Wailers tune.

    Great lyrics, great sound to it.

    Means what it says; trusting in God is something that transcends earthly knowledge and learning.

    General Comment''And what has been hidden from the wise and the prudent,
    Been revealed to the babe and the suckling''- a quote from Jesus Christ!

    General CommentNote that the Jah mentioned is not YHWH of Judaism and Christianity, but the Jah of the Ras Tafari movement, who is also referenced in Get Up, Stand Up ("mighty god is a living man").

    General Commentone of my all time favorite Bob Marley songs. I love the echos during the "forever" part in the hook. That part always gets me. It shows how powerful his lyrics actually are.

    General CommentThis is my all time favorite song by Bob Marley. The lyrics are quite personal, and he sort of tells that whatever happens, he still hold tight to his bealives.

    My OpinionAwesome...I think he also referring to Apostle St. Paul in 2 Corinthians 4: 8-9 "We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; 9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.."
