Lauryn Hill His eye is on the sparrow Lyrics

Last updated: 06/30/2014 10:13:57 PM

Verse 1:
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 cares for me;
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.

I sing because I'm happy, (I’m happy)
I sing because I'm free, (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 word I hear,
And resting on His goodness,
I lose my doubts and fear;
Though by the path He leads me
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.

Verse 3:
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 watches me.

Thin line | Reviewer: Bazaleel Raja Selwyn | 5/22/13

What is the thin line of connection between the Father and me? The thin line of Obedience onece was given to Adam and Eve though the Tree. This line breaks very easily and yet.. He cares for me. Let not your heart be discouraged.

Lauryn and Tanya, thank you for giving the world this song straight from Heaven! | Reviewer: Mel | 3/8/13

When my school ended for the Christmas and New Year holiday in 2012, I knew that I had to seriously get busy. I had to complete the writing of my thesis which is entitled, "Building Disciples Today: Literary Analysis and Study of the Methodology Used by Jesus Christ. Well, each day, over and over, and over again, I played "His Eye Is On the Sparrow".I completed the whole paper with my notes written on large index cards and my TBN Bible with the New Living Translation/ King James Version. That song got me through. The Holy Spirit showed up and I completed my last sentence on December 28, 2012. Today is March 8, 2013 and I am getting ready to defend this graduate school paper at New Life Theological Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina. I give God all the praise and the honor. I believed He sent that song to usher me into the presence of the Lord so that I could complete this paper of 78 pages. God bless the ladies for giving this anointed song of encouragement, praise and worship. May God bless all who have written in proclaiming the goodness of the Lord, my savior and my redeemer,in Jesus' perfect and sinless name, we pray. Amen.

Beautiful, old song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/25/12

This is a beautiful, old song, written in 1905, the words by Civilla Martin and music by Charles H. Gabriel. I myself remember it being sung by Ethel Waters, and I have sung it at many church services and funerals. It always touches me.
