On this track, he manages to give us a home-drenched sound even though he worked with some international instrumentalists on it. Some of the said instrumentals are known to work with top international gospel artistes like Israel Houghton.

Our versatile ‘home boy’, Toyebi, gives us a homegrown sound on this one but also hinted that he would release some western grown sound in due time.

Lyrics

Chorus:

I have seen your goodness

Seen your favor

Seen your mercy

Baba God, you too much

Seen your goodness

Seen your favor

Seen your mercy

Baba God, you too much eh!

Verse 1:

I have seen your goodness in times of adversity

I have seen your favor

When I didn’t deserve it coming to me

I’ve experienced your mercy

Showers of blessings rain over me

I’ll sing your praise for all eternity

Pre-Chorus 1:

I don’t have to beg

I don’t have to borrow

I don’t have to beg or plead

You supply my every need

You have always been right there

So I praise you right now

I know you are for me, so who can be against me

(Chorus)

Verse 2:

Times without number

You listen to me when I call

I can always count on you

With Baba I can never fall

You hold me securely

In the palm of your mighty hand

Through trials and testing

Your love has never failed

Pre-Chorus 2:

Once I was younger

And now I am older

I’ve never seen the righteous forsaken

Nor his seed begging for bread

I will live and not die

This is the plan that you have for me

You said it in your word, I believed in my heart

Now I have seen,

(Chorus)

Bridge :

You will never leave me

You will never forsake me

Even when I don’t deserve it

Your mercy still upholds me

You will never leave me

(Never leave me, never leave me, never leave me, oh no)

You will never forsake me

(Won’t forsake me, won’t forsake me, won’t forsake me, no no!)

Even when I don’t deserve your favor and your grace

(Even when I don’t deserve your mercy)

Your mercy still upholds me

(Chorus)

(Chorus)
