Eagle Of Salvation

I hear the storm
The thunder rumbles in the distance
The clouds have gathered
The sky grows dark
Will it rain down judgment?
For it is judgment we surely deserve
Your judgment, O Lord, will surely cover the earth as water

In Your wrath, remember mercy
Pour out Your mercy, O Lord
On those who seek Your face
Pour out Your grace, O Lord
On those who reach for You with both hands
Cry out to God, you who hunger for righteousness
Lift your face to heaven and implore, you who thirst for truth

O Lord, let Your holiness cover us as the wings of an eagle
The Great Eagle of our salvation Carry us away
Away from Babylon and home to Zion
Carry us home to Your Holy Mountain
To the place where You dwell
