Jamaica

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
Follow me all my days
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
Yeah, follow me all of the days of my life

Used to believe that I could never ever please Ya
Spent a long time running scared
Couldn't receive that You would never ever leave me
Didn't know that You would call me friend

But now Your grace for me is ever chasing me
No possibility of ever letting go
And You're not mad at me, no You're not mad at me
You're madly in love with me
You love me madly, madly, madly

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
Follow me all my days
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
Yeah, follow me all of the days of my life

With all of my might I sing Your praises so freely
I lift my hands and I lift them high
Open my heart to say that You are so lovely
I worship You as a lifestyle

And now Your grace for me is overtaking me
No possibility of ever letting go
So You're not mad at me, no You're not mad at me
You're madly in love with me
You love me madly, madly, madly

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
Follow me all my days
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
Follow me all of the days of my life

Fi me life, fi me la life, what me say?
Watch yah now, see it yah, now, now
Watch yah now, see it yah, now, now

Goodness and mercy it ago follow, follow, follow, follow me
All the days of my, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
All the days of fi we life, me sing so

So be confident of this one thing
That He who has began a good work in you shall complete
When you go through the waters go through the fire, He will be there
Oh no, no rivers shall not overflow you, He will be there

To the left I see Your goodness
To the right I see Your mercy
And lookin' around me all I see is Your grace
All of the days of my life

Say to the left I see Your goodness
To the right I see Your mercy
And lookin' around me all I see is Your grace
All of the days of my, all of the days of my life

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
Follow me all my days
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
Follow me all of the days of my life

To the left I see Your goodness
To the right I see Your mercy
And lookin' around me all I see is Your grace
All of the days of my life

To the left I see Your goodness
To the right I see Your mercy
And lookin' around me all I see is Your grace
And lookin' around me all I see is Your grace
And lookin' around me all I see is Your grace
And lookin' around me all I see is Your grace
All of the days of my life
