Analysis of Eagles on High



On wings of eagles soaring high
Moon and Stars above the sky
Gazing through an eagle's eye
You can look high into the sky

The wind and the rain cannot compare
How much my Jesus is really there
If only you had met me there
You can look high into the sky
Gazing through an eagle's eye

How happy is the birds that sing
When they hear heavenly angels sing
The wind at your feet and soaring high
On wings of eagle's in the sky
No matter how near or no matter how far
You can go high gazing through an eagle's eye
