The Blessing (On Eagle’s wings) Lyrics

Lyrics by Jorja Stewart & David Shay, Music by David Shay

Verse 1
I arrived at 2 pounds 12
heard the premie doctor say
Did my parents want heroics
or let nature have its way?
My folks said I was a fighter
and they were fighters, too
So they teamed up with the medics and the good Lord saw us through.
Nine months later they all knew
I wouldn’t be like other kids
Shattered dreams, desperation
brought my parents to their knees.

Chorus:
And through it all I remember
Mom and Dad, they’d say to me
You’re the apple of my eye
And you will soar on eagle’s wings.

Verse 2
Wrestlin’ Dad was awesome
He’d say I was growin’ strong
I remember drawing comfort
from Mom’s sweet and tender song
They would say God has great things in store for me
I had to claim His victory
I’m part of God’s great victory!
Growin’ up had heartaches
but we shared great moments, too
Lookin’ past my limitations
I could share what God can do.

Chorus

(Bridge):
Life still has its trials
Waiting times are long.
Times of doubt, feeling useless
Almost robbed me of my song

Final Chorus:
But through it all I remember
Mom and Dad, they’d say to me
You’re the apple of my eye
And you will soar
You will soar
You will soar
Through it all I remember
Mom and Dad, they’d say to me
You’re the apple of my eye
And you will soar on eagles’ wings
And you will soar on eagles’ wings
And you will soar on eagles’… wings
