eagle song lyrics – gaither vocal band

i stood and watched an eagle fly
spread his wings and soared across the sky
so gracefully he flew, rising effortlessly
i wanted to know just how to be free

tiny fingers curled around mine
perfectly formed newborn
the image of two, infinite mystery
i wanted to know where life comes from

what human intellect can’t sway
must be explained away, earth, wisdom, religions of men
search without end to find the spirit housed within
simplicity of god somehow escapes man

i reached for the eternal one
creation, he was waiting to reveal his purpose in me
he said, “this is where life begins
i made your spirit to glide on the wind”

come, let’s fly on the wind
come on, let’s fly on the wind

on the wind
on the wind
on the wind
