he will raise you up
On eagle's wings
There you are
The breath of dawn
Make you to shine like the sun
And hold you in the palm of his hand
You would dwell in the shelter of the lord
Who abides in his shadow for life
Say to the lord, "My refuge"
"My rock in whom I trust"
And he will raise you up
On eagle's wings
Godbless Eagle Aviation
Chuck from Collins.
