Gospel – Blues – The first part of the refrain is spoken as in a sermon describing the problem and the counterpoint is almost a shout “But I can see the promised Land from here”. As in defiance of any challenge, problem, doubt, etc. The verses fairly slow and bluesy and the chorus huge and butt kicking. It is intended to inspire faith in the midst of doubt.

Straining through the circumstances
I’m hoping through the wasted chances
Trusting that the Dream is coming true
Seems I’ve tried everything I know
The seeds I’ve planted still refuse to grow
And all I have left is my hope in You

“There is a dessert to cross” . . . (Spoken)
But I can see the Promised Land from here
Through eyes of faith that look past fear
I can see Your promises coming true

No matter what may lie ahead
Disappointment, challenge, victory, or dread
I will choose to see the Promised Land from here.

My weapons seem to be so small
I swing and swing but he just won’t fall
Yet I will pick them up even one more time
Some giants are stopped with just one stone
But this one he won’t leave me alone
And he guards the treasure (that) You said is mine

“There is a giant to slay” . . . (Spoken)
But I can see the Princess from here
Through eyes of faith that look past fear
I can see the battle already won

No matter what may lie ahead
Disappointment, challenge, victory, or dread
I will choose to see the Promised Land from here.

In You I move and have my being
And Your dream for me is what I’m seeing
As I wrestle with who I am in You
I won’t let go until I’m blessed
Though morning’s coming I cannot rest
Cause I know that I’ll be changed before we’re through

“There is a heart to be changed” . . . (Spoken)
And I can see the healing from here
Through eyes of faith that look past fear
I can see the change already come

No matter what may lie ahead
Disappointment, challenge, victory, or dread
I will choose to see the Promised Land from here.
