Feathers of an Eagle flew and settled on a church steeple
His naked solemn cry shouted:
"Where, oh, God are your people?"
My altar is prepared and welcomes every weeping heart
Empty pews without gathering saints. When will they start?"
Priests of holy garments release the fragrance of incense
Have the hearts of my people hardened — and the truth now an offense?
They seek my hand but seldom desire to behold my face
And expect mercy every morning alongside her friend, Grace
The Prophets of Old cried repentance for a dying nation
Is not holiness and deep reverence a lifetime-long temptation?
My invitation is for today as in the times of horse and chariot
There will never be any alteration in my messages or variant
The Eagle saw people walking the streets from a lofted window
Bustling about with cheer and trudging through falling snow
"Lord, they are talking, laughing, and buying holiday gifts
Oh Yes, I know all we could do is pray their priorities will shift
They seem to have more time for things and little for Me
When will they learn that money and people cannot set a soul free?"
Come to Me all who are weary and burdened I will give rest
In the secret place of worship is where your life will be blessed!
