Another blues number, this one exploring Paul's inner conflict between his desire to be with the Lord, and his determination to fulfil the commision he had been given.


Give me the wings of a bird, and I'd fly to your throne
I'd lay down the fight of my life, and I'd get myself home,
The glory is yours, the victory is yours alone
So give me the wings of a bird, and I'd fly to your throne

I've got enemies for preaching the truth in every land
I set forth the truth of the gospel of God as plain as I can
They can put me in chains but the good news is free
Well I may be dying, but Christ lives in me

It's only by grace, this work should be mine
To lift a dark veil from their eyes, and let the light shine
The power of God, is on me each day
Preaching hope for the lost, from a vessel of clay

False men say, I'm out for myself and the devil holds sway
On my way, I keep my head down and I work for the day
When we'll see what the Lord has to say
Give me the wings of a bird

Outside in my flesh, I'm wasting away,
But here on the inside, I'm stronger each day,
And all of my pain, won't make me fall,
Because the glory that's coming, outweighs them all
