I have rendered Miss Celie's Blues from the film called The Color Purple because when I heard it I was reminded of a certain sister whom, although I am not sure she will be part of our family, I still care for. I would like to give her this song as a gift. No matter what choices she makes, I want her to know that she is precious and that I would be celebrating it if she decides to come, Yahweh willing..
In order to hear it, just turn your sound on and you will hear it song in the background (N.B. It may take a minute to download as it is quite a large file - be patient, please!)
Sister, you've been on my mind
Sister, we're two of a kind
So, sister, I am keeping my eye on you.
I bet you think I am a young'n
And blind or na´ve, oh, sister
have I got news for you, I'm something
I hope you think that you're something too
Sure thing I been down that lane of doubt
And I seen how my light then went down
Oh, but trust me
No-o low life's gonna run me around
So let me tell you something sister,
Remember your God, no twister
Gonna steal your stuff away, my sister
We sure ain't got a whole lot of time,
So-o-o turn to Yahweh sister,
'Cause, honey, the Spirit's calling home.
