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

With all the other birds are flocking 'round her
She is despised by the squad
A great speckled bird in the Bible
Well, everything is a great church of God

Desiring to lower her standard
They watch every move that she makes
They long to find fault with her teachings
But really they find no mistake

I am glad I have learned of her meekness
I am proud that my name is on her book
For I want to be one never fearing
The face of my Savior to look

When He cometh descending from Heaven
On the cloud that He writes in His Word
I'll be joyfully carried to meet Him
On the wings of that great speckled bird

Songwriters
CASH, JOHNNY R.
