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 wanna rule my destiny

I and I, I wanna rule my destiny



Chorus:



Destiny, mama look from when you call me

Destiny, mama look from when you calling

I wanna rule my destiny

Yeah, yeah oh help I please Jah Jah mek mi rule



Verse 2:

I've been blessed I've been touch

I love Jah so much

They keep fighting me I'm not giving up

May the realms of Zion fill my spiritual cup

Wisdom overstanding can never be too much

Give I protection Day and night



Chorus:



Cast away their cords from us

You have them 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

Though force try to hold I down

Breaking chains has become the norm

I know I must get through no matter what a gwaan
