Jessi Colter – His Eye Is On The Sparrow lyrics

Why should I be discouraged
Why should the shadow ever come
Why should my heart feel lonely
Why should I long for heaven and home

When Jesus is my portion
My constant friend is he
His eye stays on that sparrow, yeah
I know he watches me

I sing because I'm happy
I sing because I've been set free
His eye is on the sparrow
I know he watches over me

Oh, whenever I am tempted
Whenever a storm, they rise
When song give way to sign

Oh, when hope, hope within me dies
I draw closer to him
From care he sets me free
His eye is on the sparrow, baby
I know he watches over me

So, I sing because he makes me happy
I sing because I've been set free
His eye is on that sparrow
I know he watches
I know he watches, yes, I know
He watches me
