Ozi v’zimrat Yah vay’hi li lishuah.
עָזִּי וְזִמְרָת יָהּ וַיְהִי לִי לִישׁוּעָה

Translation:

My Strength (balanced​) with the Song of God will be my salvation​ (Psalm 118:14, Exodus 15:2)

In this practice I find and express my strength,​ my will, my effort and desire when I chant “Ozi.​ When I chant “v’zi​mrat Yah,” I open and surrender​ to the God-song and let it be sung through me. Then in the last phrase, “Vayahi​ li lishuah,​ I balance those two aspects of my practice.​

- Rabbi Shefa Gold
