With Broken Wings






With broken wings
I attempt to fly
To soar above
In God's endless sky
I aim my sights
But cannot see
For there are clouds
Directly over me




With broken wings
I attempt to pass
Into the realm
Of Glories Past
But for a moment
I hesitate
For with the clouds
I see no gate




With broken wings
I am aware
To soar above
I need God's care
To pass beyond
These darkened clouds
A trust in God
I must allow




With broken wings
I sometimes fail
To reach His heights
Or follow His trail
My wings are clipped
So I must try
To forget myself
So I can fly




With broken wings
For the world to see
I try to show
What He's done for me
My wings are clipped
But I've flown high
With faith and love
I've reached the sky




With broken wings
I lay to rest
Below I see
Clouds of tests
Above I see
A ray of light
Skies are clearer
But clouds are insight.

O Lord! I am a broken-winged bird
and desire to soar in this Thy space
to which there is no limit.
How is it possible for me to do this
save through Thy providence and grace,
Thy confirmation and assistance!
(Abdu'l-Baha Baha'i World Faith p. 423)



He that hath Me not is bereft of all things.
Turn ye away from all that is on earth
and seek none else but Me.
I am the Sun of Wisdom and the Ocean of Knowledge.
I cheer the faint and revive the dead.
I am the guiding Light that illumineth the way.
I am the royal Falcon on the arm of the Almighty.
I unfold the drooping wings of every broken bird
and start it on its flight.
(Baha'u'llah, Tablets of Baha'u'llah p. 169)
