On Eagles Wings

Dedicated to all the Soldiers in the world - may this prayer protects you from harms way. Psalm 91 vs 1-16

Verse 1.  You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord,
who abide in His shadow for life,
say to the Lord: "My refuge, my rock in whom I trust!"

        Refrain:  And He will raise you up on eaglesí wings,
                      bear you on the breath of dawn,
                      make you to shine like the sun,
                      and hold you in the palm of His hand.

Verse 2.  The snare of the fowler will never capture you,
and famine will bring you no fear:
under His wings your refuge, His faithfulness your shield.

        Refrain:  And He will raise you up on eaglesí wings,
                      bear you on the breath of dawn,
                      make you to shine like the sun,
                      and hold you in the palm of His hand.

Verse 3.  You need not fear the terror of the night,
nor the BULLETS that flies by day;
though thousands fall about you, near you it shall not come.

        Refrain:  And He will raise you up on eaglesí wings,
                      bear you on the breath of dawn,
                      make you to shine like the sun,
                      and hold you in the palm of His hand.

Verse 4.  For to His angels He's given a command
to guard you in all of your ways;
upon their hands they will bear you up,
lest you dash your foot against a stone.

Refrain:  And He will raise you up on eaglesí wings,
                      bear you on the breath of dawn,
                      make you to shine like the sun,
                      and hold you in the palm of His hand.
