More On Eagles' Wings

OK, I'm flipping through my English translation of the old Office, and looking at I Vespers of Sunday, and Psalm 143. This is my favorite hour of the week--the best part of Saturday night.
Blessed be the Lord, my rock
who trains my hands for battle, my fingers for war;
My refuge and my fortress,
my stronghold, my deliverer
My shield, in whom I trust,
who subdues peoples under me....

In "honor" of the recognition of On Eagles' Wings, I'll award a small prize to the first person who can rework Psalm 143 into that melody.

The Eagles had so many other great hits in th '70s; I don't know why the poll settled on this particular one...I mean, neither this nor 'Here I Am, Lord' are on their Greatest Hits compliation.

I only have the 1971-1975 Greatest Hits. Maybe it's on volume 2.
