2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
They say patience is a virtue
It's cool 'til it starts to hurt you
No money, no car, no house, no job
Doubt and fear start to work through
Everything starts to irk you
Enemy's job's to pursue
Smoking on that "purple"... try to cover it up w/ perfume
What you thought it was sweet?
Supposed to be meek, humble and kind
Thoughts on your mind, closer to weak, dumb, blind
Feel like you're suspended in time
It's gettin' out of line...
Like you're stuck in rewind
Pass the wine...
I'm afraid, so confused...
Honestly... never thought it would end up this way
I can't take it... not much more
Been waiting on this door to open up for far too long
How ya gonna show me the Promised Land
Then tell me I can't go in...
What makes me think I'm different than another man
So I wrote this to keep focus...
So close, yet so far
I could almost taste it
Tell me why You'd take it all (away)
Could it be that You can see exactly what it is I need
Ahba, You know me... better than I know myself
These lessons are so golden
Please shape and mold me
Hold me in the palm of Your hand
Yes, I trust in You I'm open...
If it's not yet meant to be I'll wait
Test & trials build my faith
You promised to renew my strength
They that wait on Him shall mount upon wings
Water in my desert place
AHAYAH always makes a way
It's the dawning of a brand new day
So, I'll wait... I'll wait
Hol' up, hol' up, hol' up, hol' up
Wait a minute
A pool of doubt, I'm bathin' in it
This water too deep, I'm wadin' in it
Yeah, but it's a great experience
And His grace's sufficient
Bracin' myself to embrace the vision
Cuz that's what makes the difference
All things work together for good, to them that love AHAYAH
To those who are called according to His purpose
And come up higher
Humble themselves and keep commandments first
They buckle down and pray
Let patience have her perfect work
(REPEAT CHORUS X2 to END)
