    Ay ay ay ay
    Ay ay ay ay
    Ay ay ay ay

    [Intro:]
    Oh let us lift our eyes to the hills
    From whence cometh our help yes I
    And give us health and strength rastafari
    In these challenging times I say
    Never let I foot be moved
    Show I to improve
    Let the words of my mouth
    And meditation be true

    [Chorus:]
    Cause Africa awaits its creator
    Those at home and abroad
    Cause Africa awaits its creator
    Those at home and abroad
    So let peace be within thy walls
    And prosperity in the palace
    To every rebel with a past
    Jah is watching over his prophet

    So when your going out and coming in
    Let jah protect you forever more
    Oh yea oh yea
    And just like the days of mighty king david
    We trample with the Philippines
    Defending our fates seems hard

    Never let I foot be moved
    On the battlefield can't lose
    Let the evil know
    The most high is carrying you through

    [Chorus]

    [Bridge:]
    Them think that I and I no sleep
    And him no slumber
    So the sunshine that smite I
    No one fight I either
    For jah is thy keeper
    Strength and redeemer
    Forever

    Africa awaits its creator
    Those at home and abroad [x4]

    So let peace be behind those bars
    And prosperity in the palace
    To every rebel with a past
    Jah is watching over his prophet
    Ay ay ay ay
    Jah is watching over his prophet
    Oh oh oh
    Jah is watcing over his prophet
