You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord
Who abide in His shadow for life
Say to the Lord
"My refuge, my rock in whom I trust!"

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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...

    So often sung at funerals, I think this is a beautiful song to reflect on for the living as well. I too can barely get through it without tears. The lyrics should remind us of God's eternal love, and that he is with us at all times those of joy and struggle.

    This is a beautiful song that I actually sang at my brother's funeral, somehow I actually got through it without crying. Every time I hear it now I can't help but cry, but I know my brother and he loved it, he always loved when I would sing for him....

    And He will raise you up on eagles' wings.

    Make you to shine like the sun.
    And hold you in the palm of His hand.
