Lyrics
Lord give I strength
Never let I fail
To live out the greater part of my days
Give I strength
Jah give I strength
Never let I fail
To live out the greater part of my days
Give I strength

Indeed I see pestilence and plague
But I'm not afraid
They are looking for what they can take
Come in all size appear in all shape
Lord give us the vision to differentiate
Yeah they lay wait, we shall escape
God who protect is greater than great
In all that we do He holds our fate

Jah Jah give I strength
Never let I fail
To live out the greater part of my days
Give I strength
Jah give I strength
Never let I fail
To live out the greater part of my days
Give I strength

Teach the youths them right in the way they should grow
Joy is a stream constantly flow
And I don't want to be unhappy
Let me live till I'm gray
I work hard to get pay
Keep out of tale bearers and back-biters way
Never let this bit of education decay no way

Jah Jah give I strength
Never let I fail
To live out the greater part of my days
Give I strength
Jah give I strength
Never let I fail
To live out the greater part of my days
Give I strength

(Ras Shiloh's part)

Jah Jah give I strength
Never let I fail
To live out the greater part of my days
Give I strength
Jah give us strength
Never let us fail
To live out the greater part of our days
Give us strength

(Ras Shiloh's part)

Teach the youths them right in the way they should grow
Joy is a stream constantly flow
And I don't want to be unhappy
Let me live till I'm gray
I work hard to get pay
Keep out of tale bearers and back-biters way
Never let this bit of education decay no way

Jah Jah give I strength
Never let I fail
To live out the greater part of my days
