Jamaican version of The Psalm 23

The Lord ah mi one boss, and mi nuh fi want nutt’n.
Ah Him ah prevent mi from tell off people everyday.
Ah Him ah gimme peace, when so-so madness a gwa roun’ mi.
Ah Him ah remine mi fi pray and fi do everyting widout complain, murmur or kiss mi teet.

Ah Him ah remine mi dat ah Him, noh mi job, ah mi
source, although lickle more pay woulda nice.
Ah Him ah ‘top mi from mad a daytime, an’ ah! guide mi
decision dem so mi can honor Him inna hev’ryting.

Ah Him ah prevent mi from shoot up di whole place, an’
tun’ all mi supervisor dem inna some duppy, so mi no haffi go ah prison an’
live ‘mongst ah bag ah battyman or get heng. Even though mi get one whole
heap of e-mail, fool fool deadline fi work wid,

some big heediat fi supervisor, an’ ah howl body dat kyaan’ mek it a
morning time, mi nah give up because Him deh wid mi!

Suhmaddy bettah run to hell! When unnu done talk;

Ah Him mi ah go wuk fah fi wan long time. So Tank Yuh Lord Amen!
