"Wings of an Eagle"
In the darkness of my shadow, I share no more pain within myself.
I am left to fly high into eternity on the wings of an eagle, with no one else.
I spare those that I love, leaving behind beautiful memories of me,
Flying high into my Savior's sky, just sitting on the wings of an eagle.
Aw, sweet serenity.
I can see beautiful flowers like a garden of springtime plants.
On the wings of an eagle, I fly at the open gate of heaven.
Here, Lord, I stand.
I arrived by way of air. Praise God, I was not alone.
On the wings of an eagle, I was brought safely to your home.
As I look down, I can see hurt, pain, and misery.
Share no tears, just rejoice; remember I am now free.
I will be waiting for you at heaven's gate; one day we will be hand and hand.
Come by way of the wings of an eagle, traveling the sea, air, and land.
