His eye is on the sparrow

 

I heard a song yesterday that I’d never heard before.  That’s not surprising of course but the fact is I have the song on my ipod and there’s no doubt I heard it before but never really “heard” it, if that makes sense!  It caught my attention yesterday on my way home from Marie Sharkey’s Funeral Mass because it totally tied in with the Gospel at this weekend’s Mass where Jesus compares the Father’s love for us with His ability to count the hairs on our heads (not an over-taxing role for God in my case!!) and with God’s noticing even the Sparrow that falls from the sky.  The song very much speaks to the theme and maybe it’s worth a listen today.  This version has the lyrics as well … Hope you enjoy it.



“His Eye Is On The Sparrow” Lyrics

Bill Gaither [Gospel] feat. Lynda Randle

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.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.

“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.

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.

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.
