Allegorised Life #1

A wandering musician in the Sahel fell in love with a girl called Kankan. This is the “wordless groans” of love, to the tune of a meditation on Cuban slave history.

I could never have predicted that, waking up today, I would be pulled by the hair through the Three-Three-Three:

Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him. Praise the Lord with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.

Over-emphasis mine.
I noted that Moses burst into song when finally he could hand over the Israelites to Yehoshua son of the Eternal, since Moses—“for the Law was given by Moses”—could not cross the Jordan. There is a slave people today, and they will lead the World in its own song of redemption, when the Law gives way to God (Alone) is Salvation.
The Lord has said to me, “You shall not cross the Jordan.” The Lord your God himself will cross over ahead of you.
“Grace and Truth came by Jesus Christ.”
Watch the music of these people, wherever they are. “I will make them envious by those who are not a people; I will make them angry by a nation that has no understanding.”
