About Devotions on a Zebra

The lyrics for the title track "Devotions on a Zebra" were writtin by sound engineer/songwrite/lyricist Dave Simpfendorfer. The words reflect the insights of Ecclesiastes 3 in the Old Testament "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens". Dave also drew on the New Testament in the Bridge quoting from the Beatitudes of Jesus. The idea of contrast and paradox present in these passages, and in the Christian gospel as a whole, is likened to the alternating stripes of the Zebra.

"I cannot Tell" which describes the humble birth of Jesus in a manger only to be revealed as the Lord of the World.

"Visione Doppia" (Track 12) translates as 'Double Vision' - also a reference to the Zebra theme on this CD.

"Precious Lord/Nobody Knows". Written by gospel songwriter Thomas A. Dorsey at a time of intense personal grief after the death of his newborn child and then his wife, this song has become an enduring gospel classic. See the full story here. Here I've married it with the Negro Spiritual "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen".
