    The Lord is my drummer; I shall not rush.
    He maketh me to rest in tasteful spots;
    He leadeth me beside cool meter changes;
    He restoreth my "one".
    He leadeth me in the right repeats
    For His name's sake.

    Yea, though I read through the trickiest road maps,
    I will fear no train wrecks;
    For You are with it;
    Your ride and Your snare, they comfort me.

    You setteth up a solo for me
    In the presence of mine guitarists;
    You annointeth my lines with drive;
    My groove overflows.

    Surely good feel and swing will follow me
    All the tunes of each set;
    And I will dwell in the pocket
    The whole gig long.

    Now this is something I have to show to my drummer bud. And memorise to repeat silently before gigs. ;)
