An Eagle is Soaring

Representative Text

An eagle is soaring and turning and diving;
It stretches its wings to the currents of air.
It gracefully moves without effort or striving;
The updrafts will carry its flight anywhere.
How hard, Lord, we struggle and work for your blessing;
May we see your grace in the eagle above.
For you will renew us when we wait and listen,
And you will uphold us in strength and in love.
