On Eagle's Wings (Bruce Moss)

The eagle has fallen into the sea,
Taking the one I love away from me;
Because of his broken wings,
my life has been changed,
And I know that I will never be the same.

The eagle has fallen, fallen from grace,
Leaving a scar so deep, that only God can erase
The pain and the broken hearts
of those who ask why,
Why was this wounded bird unable to fly.

On eagle's wings, the saints will rise to glory,
On eagle's wings, with the angels we will sing;
On eagle's wings, we will run and not be weary,
We shall see the grace of God on eagle's wings.

The eagle has fallen, flight 491,
That carried our daughter, and carried our sons;
And O what a tragedy, that only one soul survived,
And I thank the Lord each day, that he is alive.

O where shall I go, Lord, to hide from Thee,
If I ascend into heaven, or if I dwell in the sea;
Even there Thou shall keep me in Thy holy sight,
And though the darkness cover me,
the night shall be light.

On eagle's wings, the saints will rise to glory,
On eagle's wings, with the angels we will sing;
On eagle's wings, we will run and not be weary,
We shall see the grace of God on eagle's wings.
We shall see the grace of God on eagle's wings.

O where shall I go, Lord, to hide from Thee?

Liner Notes:

Adapted from the King James Bible and dedicated to the passengers and crew of Cougar flight 491, fallen March 12, 2009, and to their families and co-workers.

The S92 transport chopper was travelling to the White Rose and Hibernia oilfields when its crew issued a mayday. With little warning, Cougar flight 491 plunged into the frigid Atlantic. Of the 18 on board, only one person survived.
