Selassie I enuh

Blessed is the man that endureth temptation
For when he's tried he shall received the crown of life
Which the Lord 'I' promise to them that love Him
James 1:12


He shall cover me with His feathers, and
His truth shall be thy shield and buckler
Psalm 91:4

Goliath fight me daily
Me a go slew dem like David
Tell me Father, why dem hate me?
Cah me no do dem nothing, Jah
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
Lean not in your owna understanding
Proverbs 3:5

Tell me Father, why dem hate me?
Cah me no do dem nothing, Jah

Born inna the Garrison
And me grow up as a sufferer
From me come out a me mother belly
Me haffi fight fi everything weh me have
Nobody never give me nothing
Me shed nuff blood sweats and tears fall
Who Jah Jah bless no man curse
Thank Jah me past the worst
Ghetto youth, never give up, don't give it up
Money fi a mek, mama house fi build up
Babylon a go gi' we a fight
But with the help of Jah there's no stopping us, no

He shall cover me with His feathers, and
His truth shall be thy shield and buckler
Goliath fight me daily
Me a go slew dem like David
Tell me Father, why dem hate me?
Cah me no do dem nothing, Jah
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
Lean not in your owna understanding
Tell me Father, why dem hate me?
Cah me no do dem nothing, Jah

Inna the Garrison
Four pickney, one mother
S'mddy tell me where the father
Prison or the jail or inna the morgue
Dem no waan we prosper, dem waan we maga
So me, tell the clans fi tell one another
Tell shower man fi tell the smuggler
The system design fi conquer
Trick dem a play 'pon we
Ghetto youth never give up, don't give it up
Money fi a mek, mama house fi build up
Babylon a go gi' we a fight
But with the help of Jah there's no stopping us, no

He shall cover me with His feathers, and
His truth shall be thy shield and buckler
Goliath fight me daily
Me a go slew dem like David
Tell me Father, why dem hate me?
Cah me no do dem nothing, Jah
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
Lean not in your owna understanding
Tell me Father, why dem hate me?
Cah me no do dem nothing, Jah
