"HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW"

His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

Why should I feel discouraged,
Why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely
And long for Heav'n 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.

Chorus
I sing because I'm happy!
[Yes, I'm happy!]
I sing because I'm free!
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

"Let not your heart be troubled,"
His tender Word 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.

[Repeat Chorus]

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 cares for me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He cares for me.

[Repeat Chorus two times]
