Ay, ay, ay, ay
Ay, ay, ay, ay
Ay, ay, ay, ay

Come let us lift our eyes to the hills
From whence cometh our help, yes I
Psalm 121:1

And give us health and strength, Rastafari
Psalm 73:26

In these challenging times, I say
Never let I foot be moved, show I to improve
Psalm 121:3

Let the words of my mouth
And meditation be true
Psalm 19:14


'Cause Africa awaits its creator
Those at home and abroad
'Cause Africa awaits its creator
Those at home and abroad
So let peace be within thy walls
And prosperity in the palace
Psalm 122:7

To every rebel with a cause
Jah is watching over His prophet

So when your going out and coming in
Let Jah protect you forever more, oh yeah, oh yeah
Deuteronomy 28:6;
Psalm 121:8

And just like the days of mighty King David
We trample with the Philippines
2 Samuel 5:25

Defending our fates seems hard

Never let I foot be moved
On the battlefield can't lose
Let the heathen know
The Most High is carrying you through

And Africa awaits its creator
Those at home and abroad
Africa awaits its creator
Those at home and abroad
So let peace be within thy walls
And prosperity in the palace
To every rebel with a cause
Jah is watching over His prophet

Them think that I and I no sleep
And him no slumber
Psalm 121:3; Ps. 121:4

So the sun shall not smite I
Psalm 121:6

No one fight I either
For Jah is thy keeper
Strength and redeemer, forever
Psalm 19:14


Good over evil from that time to this time, you know
One heart, one love, to everyone

'Cause Africa awaits its creator
Those at home and abroad
Africa awaits its creator
Those at home and abroad

Africa awaits its creator
Those at home and abroad
Africa awaits its creator
Those at home and abroad

So let peace be behind those bars
And prosperity in the palace
To every rebel with a cause
Jah is watching over his prophet
Ay, ay, ay, ay
Jah is watching over his prophet
Ooh, ooh
Jah is watching over his prophet
