On Eagle's Wings
"And he will raise you up on eagle's wing, bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of His hand". So begins the text of the popular song by Michael Joncas. Three, four or five octaves of bells provide additional or sole accompaniment to the anthem for 2-part, mixed voices. The tambre of the bells is a nice compliment to the mood of the text.
