As The Eagle Soars

As the eagle soars, Your love seeks Your “prey”

He swoops down for the “kill”

You reach out, their eternity to seal

As the eagle soars, Your love sets us free today.

 

As the lion stalks, Your mercy watches Your “victim”

He attacks at the unexpected moment

You envelope their shame to relent

As the lion stalks, Your mercy to us has come.

 

As the stallion gallops, Your joy races for Your goal

He strives for the long stretch

You plunge forward, their pain to fetch

As the stallion gallops, Your joy surrounds our souls.

 

As the hawk dives, Your compassion targets the weak

He closes in before one glance

Your poise ready, their hearts to receive

As the hawk dives, Your compassion to us has embraced.

 

As the tiger lunges, Your grace destroys the pride

He devours in a second’s breath

You consume all, their light to change from death

As the tiger lunges, Your grace to everyone belongs.
