(Chorus)
Even though the mountains hard to climb
We have to rise, we have to rise

And even though my burdens ways me down
Just Jah alone, Jah alone

Even though the mountains hard to climb
We have to rise, we have to rise

And even though my burdens ways me down
Just Jah alone, Jah alone

(Verse 1)
Sometimes my heart breaks
These burdens I carried is so hard for me to bear
And when the pain gets depressing
That’s when Jah, Jah, send me his blessings
Bring me from the dark, jah shines his light
These wings were made to fly
One day I’ll stand on my own
Reach out and touch the sky

(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse 2)
Mi naw stop walk until mi si the cliff
And mi sure when mi reach mi naw dash weh fi mi stick
Many river to cross, yeh just like Jimmy Cliff
All when the road might rocky and the journey long
Don’t stop call pon Jah him a the worthy one
The picture paint now the work begone
Fi catch the worm mi haffi try be the early one
Ghetto story a reality
Fi get a work up town dem a seh mi no have no quality
Wi haffi rise above poverty
Because wi cyaa tek the pain, and the pressure, and the agony
Somebody tell bad luck no follow mi
Mister properly gimmi a day fi run the economy
Ghetto people would a honor mi
The mount a things mi would a change
Create some ways fi get the salary

(Repeat Chorus)
