Best Religious Music

This album is about how the Lord can take broken and fragmented lives and turn them into a beautiful mosaic. We can all become a work of beauty under the artful hands of God.
~Avion Blackman

We’re suckers for religious music with a universal message. Christian artist Avion Blackman plays beautifully into our weak spot with the single “Third World Girl.” In her third solo album of the same name, Avion Blackman of Christafari sings of being His ambassador. She weaves a wonderful reggae melody around inspirational lyrics describing life as you make it. Listen and enjoy the best religious music of today. Appreciate the wisdom and experience that Avion Blackman shares with “Third World Girl.”

Third World Girl Lyrics – Avion Blackman

I woke up early this morning with a song / To tell the people where I come from / You may hear it in the accent / The twang in my tongue / Yes I come from a little island / I grew up in the country / Where there was no running water from the tap / Sometimes our cupboards were empty / Love it was all we got / We’d sing all night with a broken guitar / Having the time of our life / How did we get so far from home? / PRE-CHORUS: So I’m gonna take you there with me / Yes I’m gonna take you there so you can see / CHORUS: I’m a Third World girl / Living in a First World nation / Just a Third World girl / Living in a First World nation / BRIDGE: Ooh, ooh, ooh / Don’t forget where you’re from / Ooh, ooh, ooh / Never forget where you’re from / I still think my favorite drink is the water from a coconut / The best meal I ever taste; cooked on a three stone fire with love / Yes the sweetest dessert just falls off a mango tree / And at night the most beautiful sight is the stars in the heavens above / Sing praise all night with a broken guitar / Having the time of our life / How did we get so far from home? / (PRE-CHORUS) / (CHORUS) / Life is only what you make it / Give me a lemon I’ll make lemonade / Life is only what you make it / So just make it sweet / Third World girl / Living in a Western nation / Just a Third World girl / Living in a Western Nation / We are all foreigners / We are all aliens / Pilgrims living in a foreign land / We are all foreigners / But we are His ambassadors / Our citizenship is in Mount Zion / (BRIDGE).

Composers: Mark Mohr and Avion Blackman
