On Eagles Wings
You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord Who abide in His shadow for life,
Say to the Lord: 'My refuge, My God in whom I trust!'
Chorus: And He will raise you up on eagles' wings,
Bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the sun,And hold you in the palm of His hand.
The snare of the fowler will never capture you, and famine will bring you no fear:
Under His wings your refuge, His faithfulness your shield. Chorus
You need not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day;
Though thousands fall about you, near you it shall not come. Chorus
For to His angels He's given a command
To guard you in all of your ways' upon their hands
They will bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone. Chorus

Shout to the Lord
My Jesus, my Savior Lord, There is none like you
All of my days I want to praise The wonders of Your mighty love
My Comfort, my Shelter, Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath, all that I am never cease to worship You
Shout to the Lord all the earth let us sing
Power and majesty, praise to the King
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar at the sound of Your name
I sing for joy at the work of Your hands Forever I'll love You, forever I'll stand
Nothing compares to the promise I have In You
