Angelic food to folk I often dispense,
While sounds majestic fill attentive ears,
Yet neither voice have I nor tongue for speech.
In brave equipment of two wings I shine,
But wings without any skill to fly:
One foot I have to stand, but not a foot to go.


Answer

An Eagle Lectern.

A Lectern is used to support the Bible in a church and has been used for centuries. It is what the reader/priest stands behind when reading the Word. The concept of the eagle lectern is symbolic for taking the Word of God, or the sermon high into the heavens for all to hear. The eagle is also the symbol of St. John the Evangelist.
