Midweek Music: On Eagle’s Wings

Psalm 91 is one of my favorite Psalms. Rich with promises and comfort of God’s Almighty protection and love. 

This song is a combination of Psalm 91 and Isaiah 40:31. I think this children’s choir has the best rendition of the song on Youtube. In England, the BBC Songs of Praise have an annual competition of children’s choirs from churches, private schools and public schools around England. I think it’s a great program that really inspires kids to do something worthwhile, especially since they mostly choose Christian songs to sing. I wish there was a national program like this in the United States. 

I hope this song brightens your week! I know it has encouraged me through difficult moments, to know that I am sheltered under His wings.

Which is your favorite Psalm?

On Eagle’s Wings
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 eagle’s wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn,
Make you to shine like the sun,
And hold you in the palm of His Hand.
 
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
You need not fear the terror of the night,
Nor the arrow that flies by day,
Though thousands fall about you,
Near you it shall not come.
 
Refrain
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.
