|On Eagles Wings
Today I will fly on eagles wings, soaring ever
Up from the ground in a moment or two, Ill become
one with the sky.
My flight will take me to places unknown, to
heights Ive never been,
Clear Prop! Ill shout, then start my plane,
and off Ill go once again.
The sky so blue, the grass so green, God paints
His work so well,
Its beauty Ill see with wonder and with awe,
How can I begin to tell?
High Ill fly, then back down Ill come, moving
slowly above the ground;
Ill float through the air for a brief moment
in time, and then my wheels touch down.
Just as soon as they touch, Ill roll a few feet,
look overhead and see all is OK,
And away I will go back into the sky, to spend
the remainder of this glorious day.
What a feeling I get when I look straight ahead,
see the ground turn from green to blue,
Each time I take flight I know I will see, something
exciting, something great, something new.
Yes, Today I will fly with eagles wings, soaring
ever so high.
Ill choose my path with patience and with care,
over fields and valleys I will fly.
Then Ill watch the sunset, come down from above
and with dreams for tomorrow I will plan,
And if God will allow, back up I will go, on
eagles wings I will soar over this land.
