Oh the word of my Lord,
Deep within my being,
Oh the word of my Lord,
You have filled my mind.

Before I formed you in the womb,
I knew you through and through,
I chose you to be mine.
Before you left your mother’s side
I called to you, my child, to be my sign.

Oh the word of my Lord,
Deep within my being,
Oh the word of my Lord,
You have filled my mind.

I know that you are very young,
But I will make you strong
I’ll fill you with my word;
And you will travel through the land,
Fulfilling my command which you have heard.

Oh the word of my Lord,
Deep within my being,
Oh the word of my Lord,
You have filled my mind.

And ev’rywhere you are to go
My hand will follow you;
You will not be alone.
In all the danger that you fear
You’ll find me very near, your words my own.

Oh the word of my Lord,
Deep within my being,
Oh the word of my Lord,
You have filled my mind.

With all my strength you will be filled:
You will destroy and build,
For that is my design.
You will create and overthrow,
Reap harvests I will sow – your word is mine.

Oh the word of my Lord,
Deep within my being,
Oh the word of my Lord,
You have filled my mind.

On Eagles' Wings by Michael Joncas

Verse 1. You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord,
who abide in His shadow for life,
say to the Lord: "My refuge, my rock in whom I trust!"

Refrain: And He will raise you up on eagles’ wings,
bear you on the breath of dawn,
make you to shine like the sun,
and hold you in the palm of His hand.

Verse 2. The snare of the fowler will never capture you,
and famine will bring you no fear:
under His wings your refuge, His faithfulness your shield.

Refrain: And He will raise you up on eagles’ wings,
bear you on the breath of dawn,
make you to shine like the sun,
and hold you in the palm of His hand.

Verse 3. You need not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day;
though thousands fall about you, near you it shall not come.

Refrain: And He will raise you up on eagles’ wings,
bear you on the breath of dawn,
make you to shine like the sun,
and hold you in the palm of His hand.

Verse 4. For to His angels He's given a command
to guard you in all of your ways;
upon their hands they will bear you up,
lest you dash your foot against a stone.

Refrain: And He will raise you up on eagles’ wings,
bear you on the breath of dawn,
make you to shine like the sun,
and hold you in the palm of His hand.
