Eagle’s Wings

by Jeanie Killion


There is a peace

That soars above

The temporal things of life . . .

On eagle’s wings

It lifts me up

Above all cares and strife.


There is a place

Beyond the realm of

Ordinary things . . .

A hiding place

Where I can run

And be borne up on eagle’s wings.


Oh Lord,

That I may rise

In perfect peace with You

Taking flight above the things

That threaten to undo

The calm assurance

That I found

Living in Your love.

Oh Lord lift me up;

Let me rise

On the wings of Your love.
