"Strength Of My Life" as written by Glen Ballard, Matthew Miller, Noah Bernando Jr., Mark Traa Daniels, Paul J. Sandoval, Joel Shearer and Jason P. Truby....
Eternal rhythms in your system so clear
No negatives, take your isms stay clear
We keep it lovely, give you what you won't hear
And Matisyahu in the house, stand clear
P.O.D. in the house, stand clear
If Jah is for me, tell me who I'm goin' fear
No I won't fear
And Jah of Jacob is deserving of my love
And God of Isaac reign blessings from above
Hashem of Abraham will show me the way
I go down on my knees and this is what I pray

Strength of my life, whom shall I dread
When the evil doers approach to devour my flesh?
Even if there would be an army against me
My heart would not fear

Steer clear from weird vibes
Chuck the spirit evil guise must realize
Even if there rise a war against me
In this I trust, it's a must
Elevated is my head above my enemy
Surround me with the song of glory
Take away the scales from my eyes
Anoint your love upon my life
Have mercy on my soul and hear me when I cry
Do not abandon me and do not forsake me
Leave me on the path of integrity
Even if there would be an army against me
My heart would not fear

Strength of my life, whom shall I dread
When the evil doers approach to devour my flesh?
Back them up against the wall
Stumble and fall
Them battle y'all and stand tall
Show me favor when I call
Back them up against the wall
Stumble and fall
Battle y'all and stand tall
Show me favor when I call

Matisyahu and P.O.D. eternally with His Majesty
Dwelling in the songs of glory
Dwelling with the songs of glory

    General CommentMatisyahu makes this song great. Like P.O.D. are amazing to begin with, but the extra reggae sound makes this song amazing!

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on Testify. Would have to be about God being the "Stength of their life" And being there for them.

    General CommentI really don't like reggae, but for some reason when I hear this song I feel like rolling up a blunt and getting high as fuck. :) It really calms you down. Still, I don't think reggae belongs on POD albums even though they always put reggae in. It's like they just throw them on to fill tracks. Sad part here is that this reggae track sounds better than 95% of the rest of the shit on their album.

    General CommentMrJRK you really are sad. For shits sake your comments are an insult to P.O.D. and their music. This is a site for commenting on the meaning of tracks and not whether or not you like the song or album and what you do in your spare time to forget your sad life.
    This is an awesome song, and really highlights what P.O.D. are singing about, even on their heavier and darker song. The psalm of David "If Jah is for me, tell me who I'm goin' fear
    No I won't fear
    And Jah of Jacob is deserving of my love
    pretty much sums it up!
