The Chief Shepherd will carry you
"To the earth-walking Christian,
ankle-deep in dust,
who has never seen heaven opened
or beheld a vision of God,
this will seem all out of order,too
emotional, too extreme.
But it is the way of the strong
eagles of the kingdom, the prophets,
the apostles, the reformers and revivalists.
These fly high and see far,
and that they are not understood
is no great wonder.
The sky-loving eagle,
screaming in the sun, may be a
puzzle to the contented
biddy scratching in the yard,
but that is no good
argument against the eagle."
