Great Speckled Bird

Ernest Tubb & The Texas TroubadorsBuy this song

What a beautiful thought I am thinking concerning a great speckled bird
 Remember her name is recorded on the pages of God's holy word
 Desiring to lower her standards they watch every move that she makes 
They long to find fault with her teaching but really they find no mistakes 
[ steel ]
I am glad I have learned of her meekness and I am proud that my name is on her book
For I want to be one never fearing the face of my Saviour's true look
When he comes descending from heaven on the cloud as he writes in his words 
I'll be joyfully carried to meet him on the wings of that great speckled bird
