This song is by Christafari and appears on the album WordSound&Power (1999).

Project 67 presents: "The Conquering Lion of Judah" A Profile Study of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie the First, Emperor of Ethiopia. in Canada 1967 aboard the Royal train. (The first personal radio interview that Haile Selassie ever granted)

Question by Bill Mc Neil: "there are millions of Christians throughout the world, your Imperial Majesty, who regard you as the reincarnation of Jesus Christ.

Selassie's answer: "I have heard of that idea. I also met certain rastafarians. I told them clearly that 'I am a man,' that 'I am Mortal,' and that 'I will be replaced by the oncoming generation, and that they should never make a mistake in assuming or pretending that a human being is emanated from a deity.'"

Narrator: "But, despite this clear declaration, millions of Ethiopians still believe that he is the reincarnation of Jesus Christ."
