Dear Lord, I
sure would like to soar high,
Like an eagle where mountains seem to touch the
High above the clouds of doubt and fear,
All thought of the world below would disappear!
I want to feel the Mighty Rushing Wind in my
As I mount up to the throne of the King of
For you see, I've been so long here on the
And eagles aren't made to just walk around!
An eagle is made to soar,
Away up high above the Earth's floor!
I Became Earthbound because of a fall.
It sure looked like "I had lost it all."
Yes, I did a very foolish thing,
Which resulted in my having a broken wing.
At the time I was flying high and all alone!
I unwisely thought I could make it on my own.
That's when I was hit by satan's fiery dart,
Which found its mark upon my heart.
Then I started spinning 'round and 'round.
But, You quickly caught me e'er I touched the
There were times when I saw others fall.
Who never made it back to God at all.
But, thank God through Your amazing grace,
In my situation, that was not the case.
Upon God's arm I have learned once again to
And my wing has been on the mend!
Today, I felt great and I could tell,
That my wing was completely well!
So, when I heard God's beckoning cry,
I slowly began to fly!
Then, once again I began to soar
Never to be Earthbound any more!
