His Eye Is On The Sparrow
.
By Charles Gabriel

Verse 1
Why should I be 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,
I sing because I’m free.
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.
 
Verse 2
“Let not your heart be troubled,”
His tender words I hear,
And resting on His goodness,
I lose my doubts and fears.
Tho’ 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
 
Verse 3
Whenever I am tempted,
Whenever clouds arise,
When song gives place to sighing,
When hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to Him,
From care He sets me free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He cares for me.
Oh, His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He cares for me.
 
Chorus
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.
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.
