The Great Speckled Bird G C What a beautiful thought I was thinking D7 G Concerning the great speckled bird; C Remember her name is recorded D7 G On the pages of God's Holy Word. C All the other birds flocking around her, D7 G And she is despised by the squad; C And the great speckled bird in the Bible D7 G Represents you, the great church of God. Chorus: G C She is spreading her wings for a journey, D7 G She is going to take by and by; C When the great trumpet sounds in the morning D7 G She will meet her dear Lord in the sky. With all other churches against her, They envy her glory and fame. They hate her because she is chosen And never has denied His dear name. Desiring to lower her standard, They watch every move that she makes; They love to find fault with her teaching But really the find no mistake. Chorus In the presence of her despisers, With song never uttered before She'll arise and be gone in a moment 'Til the great tribulations are o'er. I am glad that I learned of her meekness, I am glad that my name's on her book; For I want to be one never fearing On the face of our Saviour to look. Chorus
