1.
(A) What a beautiful thought I am (D) thinking
(E) Concerning the Great Speckled (A) Bird.
(A) Remember her name is (D) recorded
(E) On the pages of God's holy (A) word.

2.
(A) With all the other birds flocking (D) 'round her,
She (E) is so despised by all the (A) flock.
(A) The Great Speckled Bird is the (D) Bible
(E) Representing the great Church of (A) God.

(Use same chords as above for rest of lyrics.)

3.
Desiring to lower her standards,
They watch every move that she makes.
They long to find fault with her teachings,
But really they find no mistakes.

4.
I'm glad I have learned of her meekness.
I am proud that my name is in her book.
For I want to be one never fearing
The faith of my Savior's true love.

5.
When He cometh, descending from heaven
On the clouds as He writes in His word,
I'll be joyfully carried to meet Him
On the wings of that Great Speckled Bird.


What a beautiful thought I am thinking
Concerning the Great Speckled Bird.
Remember her name is recorded
On the pages of God's holy word.
On the pages of God's holy word.
