Peter Tosh - Recruiting Soldiers

Song Lyrics

Biblical Reference

I'm recruiting soldiers
For Jah army
Recruiting soldiers
Jah time is now

Satan forces
They all rise up to fight
They all rise up to fight Jah and the saints

See them fighting
Against Jah children

See them slaughter them light slaves
Hear them come say Jah is dead
But they didn't show me his grave
No, no

(Repeat Chorus)
Anti-Christ forces
They all rise up
1 John 2:18 - Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
To fight against Jah and his saints Revelation 13:7 - And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
I can tell you

But there is confusion
In high places
About the lamb that was slain Revelation 5:6 - And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
Revelation 5:12 - Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
Revelation 13:8 - And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
And all these years I hear them say
They're building a nation
But all these tricks were just a game

(Repeat Chorus)

Lightning forces
Jah time is now
Lucifer forces
They all they all rise up
To fight against Jah and his saints
But that won't work
Hear them praising old Marcus Garvey
Hear them exalting his name
But all these times they be doing that I say
If he was here right now he'd go to jail the same
Matthew 23:30-32 - And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers.
(Repeat Chorus)

Only to fight...fighting a losing battle
But they fight
