  • Along with "Roots In Stereo," this was one of two tracks from the Testify album that P.O.D. worked on with the Jewish reggae artist Matisyahu. Lead singer Sonny Sandoval said: "This is a Psalm of David. Matis had dug into his Scriptures and chose this one. The lyrics read, 'Even if there would be an army against me, my heart would not fear.' King David placed his heart and trust into the God he believed in. This is a worship song for us." >>
