Glory be on to the Father and to the Son Ruler of creation, Honorable
Oh Israel, Ezekiel, Them your rebel warrior, them ah go rebel
And I won't fail, much less to compel You have the knowledge you tell
Emanuel say up with Jah palaces, down with your folly things
Light in your crevices, no matter what it is,
Look within the scene, the Nyabinghi keeps Rollin', ey

[Chorus]
Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yea
Black man rise; too long you there under disguise
Up with Jah palaces
Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yea
Black woman rise, too long you've been under your disguise

So long in affliction, the Conquering Lion shall help
And everyday the robbers of the people keep on exalting themselves
Yo, why y'all so greedy? Robbing from the needy,
Hey ey ey where is the poor man's wealth?

No this isn't easy, would you believe me? Babylon is messing up your wealth
They form the reason; we have been prisoned Youths let your voices be heard
Yo, and every season them target Black people To kill the innocent they have the nerve
Up with Jah palaces

[Chorus]
Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yea
Black man rise; too long you there in your disguise
Up with Jah palaces
Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yea
Black man rise; too long you there in your disguise

No more suffering, we ah go home No more rustling, to the throne
To ease all ah the pain we have to chant for go home Release the mental chain from down in Rome
Noting you ah gain and every day you ah moan No strain to give us the honey from the comb
More and more rain pouring down Hardcore warrior tell me how me sound
Inflation ah crush you just like bomb Fluctuation ah rush you out of them town
Come we go ah Africa and left them alone Most you slayed why is it you crave for more
Tell them this

[Chorus]
Well ah Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yea
Black woman rise, salvation never comes in a disguise
Up with Jah palaces
Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yea
Black woman rise, salvation never comes in a disguise

Well, I receive the blessing of the morning From afar I hear Ethiopia calling
Tell them for, give I the knowledge of the King The power of the Trinity always lie within
Ah innocent slave down in a the west From Africa them take we that make me vex
On them slave ship ah black man full every deck
And down in a the west me nah go flow no flap with ex, yo

[Chorus]
Ey Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yea
Black man rise, salvation never comes in a disguise
Up with Jah palaces
Freedom cry,
Black people wipe the tears from your eyes, yea
Black woman rise, salvation never comes in a disguise

Oh Israel and Ezekiel,
Them yah rebel warrior, them ah go rebel
And I won't fail, much less to compel
You have the knowledge you tell
Emanuel say up with (echoing)...
