    Right through the gates of hell
    Wait that retched soul
    That live a life of evil
    Out of control
    Tormented soul, tormented soul, go away
    Go away
    Go away from me
    Take dem away
    Father, take dem away
    Right through the gates of hell
    We powers over darkness and light
    Hypocrites and Jezebels dance to the devil's delight
    They made a pact, they made a pact, ooh
    Blood and sacrifice
    How they kill, never torture and use the name of christ
    I chant them away

    The blessing, the blessing, two years stressin'
    Said I wouldn't make it, I was being tested
    My blessings, my blessing
    I thought I wouldn't make it without being tested
    My blessings, they blessing, they blessing
    Gotta protect
    My blessings, my blessings
    Gotta protect
    My blessings, my blessings
    Blessings

    Ah me seh light it up
    Smoke up di herb
    High up, sailing like a bird
    Like a fire, burn it ah burn
    Burn it ah burn
    Bless up, step up, a full military
    Seh dem ah wish you bad, but dat nuh necessary
    Everyday you say yuh prayers, nothing ordinary
    Bless and protective from the holy sanctuary
    Evil people only wanna to see you dead and buried
    Have an evil life we seh ah di almighty bless we
    And they hate you for the truth
    Watch yuh enemies
    Watch yuh enemies

    The blessing, the blessing, two years stressin'
    Said I wouldn't make it, I was being tested
    My blessings, my blessing
    I thought I wouldn't make it without being tested
    My blessings, they blessing, they blessing
    Gotta protect
    My blessings, my blessings
    Gotta protect
    My blessings, my blessings
    Blessings, my
