Story

I wrote this song about one of the most breathtaking creatures in nature. . . the hummingbird, after a divine encounter I had with one.  This little hummer was trapped inside my screened porch, hanging onto the screen, exhausted from numerous attempts to get out.  I stepped up and cupped my hand over this little creature, he fell back into my hand without even a hint of fight or fear.  I noticed how weightless he felt~ like holding a feather.  And, I noticed how completely calm and still he was as I was walking him outside into the open.  I opened my hands to let him fly away, and this little fella just sat there in the palm of my hand.  He tilted his little head and looked me in the eye.  I am sure I gasped when he did this!  And, then a few seconds later, he flew away.  

I was awestruck by this little miracle.  And, I wrote "Fly" about this majestic "whisper of wind" and how we have much in common with this little bird as we rest in the palm of God's hand.  

Lyrics

"Fly"

Oh, little hummin’ bird
So sweet
Sittin’ in my hand 
Remindin’ me

V1  Fly little humminbird fly
Spread your wings
The delight of children’s eyes.
You move so free,
So effortlessly,
And hover out my window face to face with me.

Mmm, it’s amazing’ to me
How God can pack such wonder
In a tiny thing
Weightlessly
Dancing on the breeze
Little prism of light, proof of His majesty

CHORUS: Ohhh, little hummin’bird,
Whisper on the wind
Artfully observed.
Jewel of the sky
So fast and so strong,
Tiny image of God
You’re why I’m singin’ this song.

V2: Fly little humminbird fly
Gonna cross that ocean
So deep and so wide
Follow my lead
Across that sea
Make that flight of faith, you already believe.

Oh child hear my word
Such lessons to be learned
From a humminbird.
Take heart in your troubles,
Step out on the sea.
All things are possible, just trust in me.

CHORUS: Oh, child of mine
Whisper on the wind
Unique and divine
I’ll give you wings to fly 
And eyes to see
If you’ll rest in my hand, and seek only me.

Oh child of God
So sweet
