A pastoral meter in 6/8, this sweet and simple vocal solo shares the beauty of Divine Truth: that we are whole, eternal, and showered with Divine Love. A herald to welcome the freedom of Truth, the grace of understanding, and the idea that if we are at one with God, we are forever healed.

Lyrics

UPWARD
Lyricists: Mary Baker Eddy, adapted by Michelle J. Gonzalez
Composer: Michelle J. Gonzalez

I’ve watched in the azure the eagle’s proud wing,
His soaring majestic, and feather some fling-
Careening in liberty higher and higher –
Like genius unfolding a quenchless desire.

Would a tear dim his eye, or pinion lose power
To gaze on the lark in her emerald bower?
When higher he soareth to compass his rest,
What vision so bright as the dream in his breast!

God’s eye is upon him. He penciled his path
Whose omniscient notice the frail fledgling hath.
Though lightnings be lurid and earthquakes may shock,
He rides on the whirlwind or rests on the rock.

My course, like the eagle’s, oh still be it high,
Celestial the breezes that waft o’er its sky!
God’s eye is upon me – I am not alone
When onward and upward and heavenward borne.
God’s eye is upon me.
