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
