On Eagles Wings

You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord

Who abide in His shadow for life

Say to the Lord

“My refuge, my rock in whom I trust

And He raises you on up on Eagles Wings

Bear you on the Breath of Dawn

Make you shine like the sun

And hold you in the Palm of His Hands”


Love and miss you Kiddo
