Let your voices be heard and make a joyful noise
Joy, boy, full time nuh realize

You nuh see that we a step ina di footsteps of Jah Jah
Hear the "Eden" a talking but dem just can't bother
But step by step nuh so we climb up the ladder

Put a smile on those desolate faces
Wipe away your sorrow with no traces

Obedience and courage to a higher purpose in life
Conscious of the knowledge
That exists in a the words of the wise
Silence and devotion must we learn
For the one missconnection that we earn
The players of the faithful concern
That the tide it might be turn

And I nuh really matter if your friends are foes
To be yourself in a "the ideal" so life goes
