The Lone Wild Bird (by Henry Richard McFayden and Marty Haugen)

The lone, wild bird in lofty flight

is still with you, nor leaves your sight.

And I am yours! I rest in you,

Great Spirit come, rest in me, too.

 

The ends of the earth are in your hand,

the sea’s dark deep and far off land.

And I am yours! I rest in you,

Great Spirit, come, rest in me, too.

 

Each secret thought is known to you,

the path I walk my whole life life through;

my days, my deeds, my hopes, my fears,

my deepest joys, my silent tears.

 

In secret depths you knit my frame,

before my birth you spoke my name;

within my soul, as close as breath,

so near to me, in life, in death.

 

O search me, God, my heart reveal,

renew my life, my spirit heal;

for I am yours, I rest in you,

Great Spirit come, rest in me, too.
