Verse 1
The rich man's wealth is in the city
Destruction of the poor is his poverty
Destruction of your soul is vanity
Do you hear ?
I and I, I want to rule my destiny
I and I, I want to rule my destiny

Destiny, mama look from when you call me
Destiny, mama look from when you calling
I wannna rule my destiny
Yeah, yeah, oh help I please Jah Jah mek mi rule

Verse 2
I've been blessed I've been touched
I love Jah so much
The keep fighting me I'm not giving up
May the realms of Zion fill my spriritual cup
Wisdom overstanding can never be too much
Give i protection, day and night
From even the pestilence
that walk in the day light

Cast away their cords from us
You have thim in the region in the valley of decision
Restraining the heathen with a rod of iron
You know not the destiny of a next man
Why hold him, set him free too long

Verse 3
My destination is homeward bound
Through the force try to hold I down
Breaking chains has become the norm
I know I must get through no matter what a gwaan
