Come to Jamdung
To sing Rastafari songs
That place in the Carrybeyond
Where Osiris' lip can be found
The fourteenth piece of the christ crown
All the parishes come gather round
And listen to the gong sound
Of Sam Sharpe's command
Burn down white bwoy plantation
In one simultaneous action
(Listen to the command)

Listen to the gong sound
Of Paul Bogle's command
Retrace your steps from Stony Gut
To Morant Bay and destroy those colonial maggots
(Listen to the command)

Listen to the gong sound
Of Nanny Ashanti's command
Slew the Brutish one by one
To save the Afrikan population
(Listen to the command)

Listen to the gong sound
Of Marcus Garvey's command
Afrika for the Afrikans
Those at home and those abroad
(Listen to the command)

And come to Jamdung
Come sing Rastafari songs
That place in the Carrybeyond
Where Osiris' lip can be found
The fourteenth piece of the christ crown
All the parishes come gather round
And listen to the gong sound
Of Bob Marley's command
Know your story, know your destiny
So in the abundance of water, you cannot be thirsty
(Listen to the command)

Listen to the gong sound
Of Peter Tosh's command
No rassclawt lovey dovey softy
Sing praises to the bumboclawt Almighty
(Listen to the command)

Listen to the gong sound
Of Garnet Silk's command
If you know not Love, you know not Jah
For Jah is Love
(Listen to the command)

And come to Jamdung
Come sing Rastafari songs
That place in the Carrybeyond
Where Osiris' lip can be found
The fourteenth piece of the christ crown
All the parishes come gather round
And listen to the gong sound
Of the Nyahbinghi's command
Move to the rythm of the drum and be free
Do good all Afrikan pickney
(Listen to the command)

Listen to the gong sound
Of the Boboshanti's command
This is Royal Priesthood
Of the Rastafari Brotherhood
(Listen to the command)

Listen to the gong sound
Of the Twelve Tribe's command
Organization and centralization
Is essential to repatriation
(Listen to the command)

Listen to the gong sound
Of the holy nations command
There is no peace without justice
One Perfect Love is what I'n'I practice
(Listen to the command)

And come to Jamdung
Come sing redemption songs
Come listen to the GongGuru
Sound of the abeng
Heralding all the rebellious
To freehigh pinnacle
The Ithiopian example
Babylon tried to trample
Bedward sound in August Town
Kodjo and Taki upon
Accompong grounds
But to no avail
The whole world still gather round
The likkle circle throne
To listen to the gong sound
Of Jamdung's command
Out of many we are one people!!!
(Listen to the command)
Out of many we are one people!!!
(Listen to the command)
Out of many we are one people!!!
(Listen to the command, listen to the command, listen to the command)
