I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars. — Og Mandino

po_oConnor-Sinead3Sinéad Marie Bernadette O’Connor (born December 8, 1966) is an Irish singer-songwriter who rose to fame in the late 1980s with her debut album The Lion and the Cobra.

O’Connor achieved worldwide success in 1990 with a cover of Prince’s song “Nothing Compares 2 U”.

Since then, while maintaining her singing career, she has occasionally encountered controversy, partly due to her statements and gestures—such as her ordination as a priest despite being a woman with a Roman Catholic background—and her strongly expressed views on organized religion, women’s rights, war, and child abuse.

In addition to her nine solo albums her work includes many singles, songs for films, collaborations with many other artists and appearances at charity fundraising concerts.

PSALM 33

Sing, oh, you righteous to the lord
It’s right that the upright should acclaim Him
Sing to Jah with your guitar
Turn up your bass amp, whack it up all the way to save Him

By the word of Jah heaven was made
By the breath of His mouth all its hosts
He gathers up the oceans like a mound
And stores the deep, stores the deep in vaults

Sing Him a new song, sweet with shouts of joy
For the word of Jah is right
And He loves what is right
And He sees what is right
And the earth is full of His care

Jah spoke and it was
He commanded and it endured
He frustrates the plans of nations
And brings to nothing, the designs of people

The designs of people
The designs of people
The designs of people

ALL BABIES
Lyrics by Sinéad O’Connor

All babies are born saying God’s name
Over and over,
All born singing God’s name
All babies are flown from the Universe
From there they’re lifted by the hands of angels
God gives them the stars to use as ladders
She hears their calls
She is mother and father
All babies are born out of great pain
Over and over
All born into great pain
All babies are crying
For no-one remembers God’s name
All babies are born saying God’s name
Over and over,
All born singing God’s name
All babies are flown from the Universe
From there they’re lifted by the hands of angels
God gives them the stars to use as ladders
She hears their calls
She is mother and father
All babies are born out of great pain
Over and over
All born into great pain
All babies are crying
For no-one remembers God’s name

There’s only love
There’s only love
There’s only love in this world
There’s only love
There’s only love
There’s only love in this world
