His Eye Is On The Sparrow

Sparrow 2

Why should I feel discouraged,
Why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely,
And long for Heaven and Home,
When Jesus is my portion?
My constant Friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

'Let not your heart be troubled,'
His tender words I hear,
And resting on His goodness,
I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path He leadeth,
But one step I may see;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

Whenever I am tempted,
Whenever clouds arise,
When songs give place to sighing,
When hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to Him,
From care He sets me free;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

  2. I love that song, and I have the first line on my bedroom wall as a reminder God is watching over us. It is great to see it when I go to bed and when I rise.
