Here are the lyrics to the ‘Oneness of Religion’ rap:

This one goes out to all of the believers,
All of the worshipers, clergy, all the leaders,
Priests, bishops, yeah, all of the ministry,
Mullahs, rabbis, all with divinity,
I can’t forget about the monks and the gurus,
And all the common folks, yeah this is for you too,
For those who worship in a mosque or a chapel,
Or in a synagogue, church, or a cathedral,
Or If you pray at a vihara, temple, or a dome,
Or if you like to keep it simple and just pray at home,
If you believe in God, Yahweh, or Allah,
Or if you call it Jehovah, Dios, or Brahma,
Or if you read from a scripture or a holy book,
Like the Bible, the Quran, or the Talmud,
Or if you’re down with the Bhagavad Gita,
Or the Tripitaka and its many sutras,
How ’bout the Hidden Words and the Book of Certitude,
Or the many more, yeah I know I missed a few,
If you like to say Shalom or Hallelujah,
Or Allahu Akbar, yeah, I’m talking to yuh,
Or if you greet with an Allahu-Abha or Namaste,
Then open up your ears to what I am about to say,
We think we have different religions but we’re really one,
No matter where we get our light it’s from the same sun,

You might be thinking that I’m crazy but just wait a minute,
Open your mind and let some of this information in it,
Let’s take a look at some of God’s Manifestations,
Some exploration into all their situations,
Their main purpose was to educate humanity,
To teach us about God and our spirituality,
They each were perfect mirrors reflecting the light of God,
To help the world understand this life and the life beyond,
Abraham taught us that there is just one Creator,
And not to worship things of this world cuz there’s something greater, Moses introduced us to the basic laws of God,
To never kill, cheat, lie, loot, steal, or rob,
Krishna taught us that to love God we must be devout,
And that in this life what goes around, it comes around
I’m talking karma man,
Buddha taught us dharma man,
Spiritual enlightenment, that’s how we reach nirvana man,
Zoroaster taught us that we can choose bad or good,
That means we have free will, we decide our livelihood,
Jesus taught us that we should show others love and peace,
And that if someone strikes you, you should turn the other cheek, Mohammed taught us to submit unto the will of God,
And that this life’s a struggle, that is what he called Jihad,
The Bab prepared us for the one whom God made manifest,
And for this He took 750 in the chest,
So that Baha’u’llah could bring God’s message for today,
And now the quest for global unity is underway,
