B.J. Thomas

His Eye Is On The Sparrow

Play

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
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me

Whenever I am tempted
Whenever clouds arise
When songs give way to sighing
And 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

Ohh His eye is the sparrow
And I know He watches me
