Take wings to thy soul; take the pinions of prayer
To rise above trials, temptations and care;
New measures of blessing so trustfully bring,
And hold sweet communion with Jesus, thy king.

Refrain

Take wings, bright wings;
Take wings to the soul, O, believer, today!
Take wings, bright wings;
Mount up as the eagle, rejoice in thy way.

Take wings to thy soul; take the pinions of praise;
Arise, like the lark, in the pure morning rays;
With carols of gladness as fresh as the dew,
Give thanks for His mercies, abundant and true.

Refrain

Take wings to thy soul; take the pinions of love,
All faithfully serving the Master above;
O, haste to the needy with tidings of cheer;
Spread heavenly sunshine where pathways are drear.

Refrain
