Bless the L,O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.Bless the L,O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies;Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.Bible (Old Testament)

That eagle's fate and mine are one, Which on the shaft that made him die Espied a feather of his own, Wherewith he wont to soar so high.Edmund Waller
