Midnite – Due Reward lyrics

If you plant corn
You gonna' reap corn
That' what a gwan
It a gwan
If you plant corn
You gonna' reap corn
That's what a gwan
It a gwan
Lift up your head Selassie I
I and I ah chant out Rasta Fari
Lift up your head Selassie I
I and I ah chant out Rasta Fari
Jah own the earth, the moon and sky
Tell them come look ina the lion's eye

Due reward
Babylon will get your due reward
Degrees of retribution under God
Due reward
Everyone will get their due reward
Deeds have consequences
Awhoa under god

If you will only learn of your self
You will find internal and eternal wealth
And start living
And start living
And start living
When together we synchronize
Our actual weight and size
Evil will be trembling
Evil will be trembling
Evil will be trembling
Revenge is not in our plan
We only plan to rebuild a broken man
And start living
And start living
And start living

Hold up your head Selassie I
I and I a chant out Rasta Fari
Lift up your head Selassie I
I and I ah chant out Rasta Fari
Tell them come look ina the Lion's eye
Jah run the earth, the moon and sky
Due reward
Babylon will get your due reward
Deeds have consequences under God
Due reward
Babylon will get your due reward
Degrees of retribution under god

The book that was sealed is open
And the panic of the frantic
Has divided our houses
Spirit of deep sleep has been lifted
Some are pandering for mercy
Some are fighting until the end
I say, the end
Fighting to the end I say

Lift up your head Selassie I
I and I ah chant out Rasta Fari
Lift up your head Selassie I
I man a chant Jah Rasta Fari
Jah own the earth, the moon and sky
Tell them come look ina the lion eye

The bread of adversity
And the waters of affliction
Shall not remove our teacher
Jah shall give our heart a song
Lips of indignation tongues of devouring fire

So corn
That's what a gwan, it a gwan
If you plant corn you gonna' reap corn
That's what a gwan
It a gwan
It a gwan

Corn unto corn a gwan
Lord another youth dead and gone
Corn onto corn a gwan
Lord another youth dead and gone
And then unto us a son is born
Lord unto us a son is born
And then unto us a son is born
Lord unto us a son is born

The government shall be
Upon our shoulder
The brightness of our fire
Will cool troubled water
You enemy will be of your own house
The strength of their desire
Will be for your failure

So corn
That's what a gwan, it a gwan
If you plant corn you gonna' reap corn
That's what a gwan
It a gwan

Lift up your head Selassie I
I man ah chant out Rasta Fari
Lift up your head Selassie I
I and I ah chant out Rasta Fari
Tell them come look ina the lion eye
Tell them come look ina the lion eye
Go weh,
Selassie I
I and I ah chant out Rasta Fari
Emperor Selassie I the highest I
I and I a chant out Rasta Fari

Lift up your head Selassie I
I and I ah chant Jah Rasta Fari
Tell them come look ina the lion eye
Tell them come look ina the lion eye

Due reward
Due reward
Deeds have consequences I say
Under God
Due reward
Everyone will get your reward
Degrees of retribution under God

Lift up your head Selassie I
I and I ah chant out Rasta Fari
Hold up your head Selassie I
I and I ah chant out Rasta Fari
Tell them come look ina the lion eye
Tell them come look ina the lion eye
Jah own the earth, the moon and sky
Emperor Selassie I the highest I
Lift up your head Selassie I
I and I ah chant out Rasta Fari
Lift up your head hail Selassie I
I and I ah chant out Rasta Fari

Corn that's what a gwan
It a gwan
If you plant corn you plant corn
If you plant corn you plant corn
If you plant corn you plant corn
You gonna' reap corn
That's what a gwan
It a gwan
