The lone, wild bird in lofty flight is still with thee, nor leaves thy sight.
And I am thine! I rest in thee. Great Spirit come, and rest in me.

The ends of earth are in thy hand, the sea’s dark deep and far off land.
And I am thine! I rest in thee. Great Spirit come, and rest in me.

Henry R. McFadyen
