Wings

Too long I've been grounded Lord, where are my wings?  Please teach me of Your glory   Until my heart sings. May my wings then unfold  Lift me high in the air When I'm down on my knees  Lord, please meet me there.  Too long I've been grounded Lord, where are my wings?  Please teach me [...]

When I'm struggling to concentrate  Can't see anything new Lord, help me to remember everything You do.

When I don’t understand  Lord, help me to take Your hand  I don’t want [...]

I wanted to [...]

But I know there's still joyFor I've also known graceWhen the world turns greyHe doesn't turn awayHe's forever and always the Rock who won't change. So [...]
