A Hymn: You Have Watched for Long, Lord


Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days


Composer's Foreword

I do not know how to put my composed words into tonic solfa format, but having learnt however remotely how to compose songs using local Yoruba format, I decide to come with a work around on how to make my songs internationally acceptable, therefore, I have been mimicking some hymns which I believe anyone who knows how to sing such hymn globally would be able to sing along with me my composed song using the tune that I have used beneath.

Having said this, I sincerely invite you to join me in singing this newly composed song, because I know music yea songs is one of the things that makes heart merry lifting hearts out of the cauldron of darkness that the enemies may have subjected people to and draws heart closer to God and his blessings.

Praying, hoping and trusting that you will be blessed with the song as you sing along with me and if you do not know the tune, I sincerely trust that God will bless your hearts, homes and all that is yours as you read the wordings of the newly composed song.

The Composed Hymn

1. You have watched 'ven for too long

Oh Lord the eternal Rock

As the wicked ones thriveth

Even in their wickednes

Arise oh Lord in your power

Put an end to their wickedness

That they 'll know you the most High

Is Sovereign ruler over all the earth

2. You have been watching oh Lord

As enemies keep mocking me

Continually they say unto me

Where also is even thine God

Daily pour out my heart to Thee

That you be no more silent

Even on my plight hasten Lord

To show thyself Mighty

3. Thou oh Lord knows yea thou know

That I have suffered long

Not in the hands of my enemies

For I will have avoided them

But I 'be been 'flicted an' troubled

Yea and oppressed even by the

Members of my own household

Thou Lord knows yea thou know

4. Arise Lord to deliver me

Because I am helpless

I have neither power of my own

Nor might that I can call mine

Yea completely have I relied

Even on you the great God

Therefore I run to your secret place

I have made there my abode
