birds of the air

bethel (#1)


yes yes of course

all of you

yes of course

you sing

because you are alive

in motion

singing through

bars and cages


to high places

where lies


and fear


in the chorus

of your beating wings

made weightless

by songs

that crown the king

even the sparrow (#2)


build your nest


where i can hear

your song

watch you raise

your young

send forth a wind

lifting their arms

watching them leap

with joy

into the song

every heart sings

when it finds

where it belongs

and the swallow (#3)

come to me



disgruntled downtrodden

let the pain

be forgotten

as you build your nest

and find your rest

at my altar
