Sparrow
 
Just as He feeds
The birds of the sky
He hears my cry
Just as he fends 
For them,
He cares for me
If only I trusted him
I could be free
Like the sparrows
Riding the air
Beneath their wings
Those little birds'
Hearts worry free
 
I envy the sensation
Of safe, careless
Free-flying
The strength and power
An eagle must feel!
But I'm too stubborn
 And impatient
My soul drops to the pit
LIke a slimy, electrified eel
 
But Isaiah told me
To wait on the Lord
And his strength
So I can rise like an eagle
And swoop like a sparrow
 
I'm sick of sitting
In this nest of despair
Come on, Lord!
Get me out of here!
 I wanna feel free
Soar above the trees
Be everything you want me to be
But tears threaten 
To destroy me
My spirit's shaking
Like a leaf
Come hold me steady
I need a daddy
Who will take care of me?
