If I Were a Bird
If I were a bird an eagle I’d be.
Majestic I’d soar the heavens so free.
My eyes would see far in search of a meal.
My wings would spread out, the wind I would feel.
If I were a bird a swallow perhaps.
I’d swing on a breeze without leaving tracks.
I’d swoop all day long to snack on some bugs.
I’d stay with more swallows just sharing their love.
If I were a bird a robin maybe.
I’d sing out my song as loud as can be.
I’d hop on the ground in search of some worms.
Before it got cold I’d fly south where it’s warm.
If I were a bird a penguin in tux.
I’d waddle on land just looking so lux.
To fly under water would be my forte.
Sushi for me each meal of the day.
If I were a bird a swan so refined.
White feathers to clean and keep looking prime.
Graceful I’d float on top of the lake.
Not much for a song so silence I’ll make.
But I’m not a bird that wasn’t God’s plan.
It’s His design to make me a man.
His image I carry inside me each day.
The curse came from Adam still dogs my way.
To reach Him’s too much even to fly.
The distance too great for my efforts to try.
So God came to earth as one just like me.
To die as a ransom to pay the high fee.
The cross is the bridge that’s built to bind.
The Maker of all things and my feeble mind.
His Son’s how He sees me because of this gift.
I took from His own hand there’s now no more rift.
If I were a bird He wouldn’t die for me.
Because I love Jesus I’m now totally free.
