Soaring Like Eagles

They who wait on the Lord shall soar like eagles. Isaiah 40: 31

Understand, if you want to know the Creator, created things.

The beauty of the trees
The softness of the air
The fragrance of the grass
Speaks to me.

The summit of the mountain
The thunder of the sky
The rhythm of the sea
Speaks to me

The faintness of the stars
The freshness of the morning
The dewdrops on the flower
Speaks to me

The strength of fire
The taste of salmon
The trail of the sun
And the life that never goes away
They speak to me
And my heart soars.
Chief Dan George

My dear King, my own King, without pride, without sin
You created the whole world, eternal, victorious King.
King above the elements, King above the sun, King beneath the ocean
King of the north and south, the east and west
against you no enemy can prevail.
And you created us to be your stewards of the earth
and we praise you for your boundless love.
The Celtic Psalter
