Woo, hail to the most high, Emperor Selassie I
Get it right we shining bright, boom

CHORUS
Let us give Jah thanks and praise
for all his goodness all these years
Don't be ungrateful just be fateful and hail 'fari
Let us give Jah thanks and praise
for all his goodness all these years
Don't be ungrateful just be fateful hail 'fari ('fari)

Be active and responsive don't you be clumsy
Don't you hurt the children of the earth and let no one see
Youths of today, don't you go astray, hope and pray
then let the blessing come amounst we
Remember what Jah has done for us,
create the heaven and the earth He shine the sun for us
He watch over our daughters and son for us
He's for all not just some of us

CHORUS
Let us give Jah thanks and praise
for all his goodness all those years
Don't be ungrateful just be fateful hail 'fari
Children give Jah thanks and praise
for all his love and kindness all these years
Don't be ungrateful just be fateful hail 'fari

Love to the world everyone say
we've been coming a long way
Mount Zion I love surround we
Pagans you going the wrong way
Hail king Selassie I of course

Israel King is Israel God of course
Love the King of kings and Lord of lords of course

CHORUS
Give Jah thanks and praise
for all his goodness all these years
Give Jah thanks and praise
for all his goodness all these years
Don't be ungrateful just be fateful hail Selassie I ('fari)

Oh from morning 'til noon
give thanks and praise before you're doom
Most high Selassie I is coming soon
In the fire the wicked consume
From the hills onto the valleys
from the stream, the fountains and the tributaries
All living things
they're on his territory damn
Hail King Selassie make it hurry

CHORUS
Let us give Jah thanks and praise
for all his goodness all these years
Don't be ungrateful just be fateful hail Selassie I
People give Jah thanks and praise
for all his protection all these years
Don't be ungrateful just be fateful hail, hail 'fari

Hey oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oooh ooooh oooh ooooh
