1 The care the eagle gives her young,
safe in her lofty nest,
is like the tender love of God
for us made manifest.
2 As when the time to venture comes,
she stirs them out to flight,
so we are pressed to boldly try,
to strive for daring height.
3 And if we flutter helplessly,
as fledgling eagles fall,
beneath us lift God's mighty wings
to bear us, one and all.
