ABOVE THE CLOUDS
By: W. Taylor Hammond
Above the clouds the sun is ever shining
While sunbeams vie to make the heavens glow
The eagle soars aloft on wings reclining,
While tempest rages violently below.
She knows her place of rest above the thunder
For eagles wings are taught of God to rise
Above the clouds to feel the glorious wonder
Of everlasting calm amid the skies.
So may it be with you in sorrow
As storms of grief and trial weave their shrouds
There is a place of refuge for the morrow----
You’ll find it if you rise above the clouds
Above the clouds----I mean of earth’s repining—
The child of faith may rise on eagle’s wings
To find the Sun of Righteousness e’er shining
And peace transcending all these earthly things.
