His Eye Is On The Sparrow

“Are not five sparrows sold for two cents? Yet not one of them is forgotten before God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.”
Luke 12:6-7

I was looking for a video of this song, and in God’s providence found this one that was just uploaded on Monday. It hasn’t been up for 24 hours.

“Mother and daughter duo Patti and Emily Drennan sing one of their favorite songs of hope, “His Eye is on the Sparrow”, despite being miles and states away from each other during this global crisis (Oklahoma and New York).”

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.

The other verses:

“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.
[Refrain]

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:
His eye is on the sparrow,
and I know he watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
and I know He watches me.
[Refrain]
