Lyrics

"DEFENDER OF THE FAITH" written by Akinsanya

Hail H.I.M. His Imperial Majesty
Hail Her Royal Majesty
Mother, Father of Iration
PROTECTORATE OF InI LIBERTY AND BLACK REDEMTION
Rastafari

*Chorus
HE IS THE ANCIENT OF DAYZ, DEFENDER OF THE FAITH
THA FYAH AND THE FLAME, HIM IS DI POTTER, WE ARE THE CLAY
I DO WHAT HE SAY WHAT HE COMMANDS I WILL OBEY
ACCORDING TO YUH WORKS AH SO YUH GET PAY!

POETICALLY I SPEAK HAILING THE KING FROM THE EAST
OBSOLETE IS THE BEAST, InI TRAMPLE DEMONS UNDER FEET
SIX FOOT SIX DEEP, WID COFFIN AND REET
BOUND TO THE DEPTH OF THE SEA
EVIL MUST CEASE, RETREAT, CONQUERED BY GOOD WITH
A TRIUMPHANT DEFEAT

SO HERE IS I STORY
AS InI CLAIM THE VICTORY
PROCLAIMING InI LIBERTY FROM CAPTIVITY
THROUGH THE POWERS OF HIS MAJESTY
I HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR
JUS’ BE PREPARE AND AWARE
TO SISTERS AND BROTHERS DILIGENTLY SHOW YOU CARE
THROUGHOUT HISTORY IT HAS BEEN THE INACTION OF THOSE WHO COULD HAVE ACTED
THE INDIFFERENCE OF THOSE WHO SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER THE SILENCE OF THE VOICE OF JUSTICE 
WHEN IT MATTERED MOST
THAT HAS MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR EVIL TO TRIUMPH
HEAR I CHANTING WORDS OF THE KING

*Chorus repeat

QUESTION
WHO BOUND THE DRAGON?
MUST BE THE CONQUERING LION
OVER LAND AIR AND SEA
JAHJAH REIGNS ITERNALLY
ROLL DI TUNDA FLASH THE LIGHTNING SHOOK THE EARTHQUAKE
HIM IS THE ONE WHO IS GREATER THAN GREAT

I DON’T WONDA I DON’T PONDER
InI HAIL THE LION OF JUDAH
HE LIVES N REIGNS AND CONQUER
(MY POEPLE) BEWARE OF PROPAGANDA
DON’T BELIEVE
IT’S BEST TO KNOW UP THE RIVER NILE KNOWLEDGE FLOW
DUBWISE TO YUH MINE
TO FREE THE DEAF, DUMB AND BLIND

POETICALLY I SPEAK HAILING THE KING FROM THE EAST
OBSOLETE IS THE BEAST, InI TRAMPLE DEMONS UNDER FEET
SIX FOOT SIX DEEP, WID COFFIN AND REET
BOUND TO THE DEPTH OF THE SEA
EVIL MUST CEASE, RETREAT, CONQUERED BY GOOD WITH
A TRIUMPHANT DEFEAT

*Chorus repeat

Rastafari Jah!
