To Scott and Tommy,
As I prayed for Scott’s well-being today as he underwent surgery, the hymn, ‘On Eagle’s Wings’ kept coming to mind. I recalled the story of the WWI battalion that prayed using Psalm 91 daily. None of the soldiers in this battalion suffered any serious casualty during their tour of duty.
Here is the 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.
Here is a link to the entire hymn and accompanying melody.
I hope that this brings you strength and peace in the knowledge that the Lord is your refuge and shield.
