Be blessed as you listen to this bluegrass performance of ‘On Eagles’ Wings’ from Ellen Haygood and her husband, Michael. This powerful hymn is based on the verses of Psalm 91. Written by Michael Joncas, this beautiful song has been covered by countless artists over the years. Recently, President-elect Joe Biden quoted words from ‘On Eagles’ Wings’ during his acceptance speech.
“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!"
Michael and Ellen Haygood are a talented couple who both come from musical families. For years, they’ve used their God-given gift to give glory to His Name and that’s exactly what they are doing today. After a friend sent Michael Psalm 91, he was reminded of the song ‘On Eagles’ Wings.’ Along with his wife, they decided to record an acoustic rendition of this stunning song. Just listen as they belt out these words of love and praise for our King.
“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”
As you listen to these lyrics, be reminded of the love and comfort that comes from our Father in Heaven. He will raise us all up to greater heights than we can ever imagine.
Isaiah 40:31 “But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”
