The care the eagle gives her
if you do not hear the tune, click
The care the eagle gives her young,
safe in her lofty nest,
is like the tender love of God
for us made manifest.
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.
And if we flutter helplessly,
as fledgling eagles fall,
beneath us lift God's mighty wings
to bear us, one and all.
