Sophia White

Rookie ('90 / America)

As an Eagle


I was down
I was weary
I was running
About to faint
But You
You were there
You heard my prayer
And raised me up!

On wings
As an Eagle
Flying for You
You alone!

I was failing
I was worn
I was falling
About to drop
But you
You were there
You heard my prayer
And raised me up!

On wings
As an Eagle
Flying for You
You alone.

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
