"Gospel Time" is the opening song on Beenie Man's 1999 recording, The Doctor. Among Beenie Man's recordings, "Gospel Time" is unique in that it juxtaposes traditional church choruses against a hip-hop groove and a dancehall vocal style, deliberately creating a striking dissonance between the sacred and the profane, the church and the dance club. The introduction to "Gospel Time" is a slow gospel rendition of "Praise Him" in triadic harmony, after which the rhythmicized chorus is sung.
