This song is by Eartha and appears on the album This I Know (2000).

I will stand upon my watch
Set me upon a tower
I will watch to see what the Lord will say unto me
He said write the vision,
Make it plain upon the tables
That he may run that readeth it,
For the vision is for an appointed time,
At the end it shall speak and not lie

I know that you've been waiting for a while
Seems like your blessings they just keep passing you by
Everybody's got something going on
You're waiting for the dream that you can call your own

Though in the fire you've been thoroughly tried
God is not a man that He should ever lie, He won't ever lie

And if He said it just you surely wait
For the just man shall live by his faith

I've got a word for you and it ain't nothin' new
This is what you oughta do - rehearse His promises to you
It is only by His grace that we have the patience to wait
You oughta give God His praise

Whatever He's told you, whatever He's shown you
Count it already done cause only He can do
Don't stagger at his promise, just you believe
Like Abraham our father, you shall receive.
