On Eagle's Wings

In the time of my trouble,
I called on the Lord,
My Deliverer swooped down,
With the swiftness of an eagle,
To answer me.

Danger and distress lurked around me,
I was terrified,
In my fear I called on the Lord,
More tenderly than a mother,
My God comforted me.

I will sing to my Beloved always,
His praise ever in my heart,
Will spill from my lips,
The love of the Lord overwhelms me,
Like a mighty river it rushes over me,
I drown in joy.

My Lord delights in my love,
He calls me by my name,,
He whispers it softly in my soul,
His Voice gentle,

Gentle as an evening breeze.
He soothes me and calms me, 
He chases away my fears,
He calls me little sister, bride, 
Heart’s delight,
I respond, "My soul's beloved, 
My Lord and my God."

The radiant sun is setting,
It's loath to say goodbye,
Lingering to kiss and leave,
Ablaze an azure sky.

Quickening to  fiery red,
From touch both brash and bold,
The vault is rife with colors,
That range from blush to gold.

The waves caress and whisper,
As they ripple on the beach,
The shell strewn sand's a shimmer,
‘Neath clouds that glow in peach.

Full-throated each bird is singing,
Vespers at close of day,
The wind joins in the chorus,
As Creation renders praise.
