Shirley Verrett - His Eye Is on the Sparrow

English

His Eye Is on the Sparrow

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;
Although 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.
