Dear Mother God Your Wings Are Warm Arou

Dear Mother God, your wings are warm around us,
we are enfolded in your love and care;
safe in the dark, your heartbeat’s pulse surrounds us,
you call to us, for you are always there.

You call to us, for we are in your image.
We wait on you, the nest is cold and bare;
high overhead your wing-beats call us onward.
filled with your power, we ride the empty air.

Let not our freedom scorn the needs of others —
we climb the clouds until our strong heart sings;
may we enfold our sisters and our brothers,
till all are strong, till all have eagles’ wings.
