Christian Poem: Wings

By Jill Briscoe


Give my words wings, Lord

May they alight gently on the branches of men’s minds

bending them to the winds of Your will.

May they fly high enough to touch the lofty,

low enough to breathe the breath

of sweet encouragement upon the downcast soul.

Give my words wings, Lord.

May they fly swift and far.

winning the race with the words of the worldly wise,

to the hearts of men.

Give my words wings, Lord.

See them now

nesting -

down at thy feet.

Silenced into ecstasy,

home at last.
