1 The care the eagle gives her young, safe in her lofty nest,
is like the tender love of God for us made manifest.
2 As when the time to venture comes, she stirs them out to flight,
so we are pressed to boldly try, to strive for daring height.
3 And if we flutter helplessly, as fledgling eagles fall,
beneath us lift God's mighty wings to bear us, one and all.
