Why should I be discouraged and why should the shadows fall?
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.

Let not your heart be troubled; these tender words I hear;
And resting on his goodness I lose my doubts and fears;
For 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;
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me.

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 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...

    The song, "His eyes his on the Sprarrow" is a song that encourages me when I'm going through difficult times in my life. I know that I can depend on God to bring me through my difficulties in life. If he can provide for the birds and the animals who doesn't know where their next meal will come from. I know he will provide for me because he promised that he will never leave me nor forsake me. He said all my needs he will supply. He said come to me who are heavy laden and I will give you rest, with God, all things are possible!. I will keep holding on because I know he be there for me to the very end. So eventhough the sea are rough and the pains and difficulties of life toss and turn me like the mighty waves of a stormy sea, I will keep holding on because I know my God will never leave me or forsake me; Thank you Jesus.

    The heavenly father saw his son go through much pain, suffering, and humiliation so that I could be forgiven for my sins and have eternal life. Who am I to complain over the minor difficulties I have? Who am I to complain about any difficulties no matter how painful? “ his eye is on the sparrow and I know he watches (over) me! He is with me in the middle of it all. He is there to strengthen, guide, and protect. He is there to deliver in his time just like he delivered jesus from the grave as he arose in victory over sin and death. Hallelujah! What a savior!

    I heard this song and this album when it 1st came out while I lived with my aunt in Mississippi. She worked very hard and achieved great things in the late 50's. We must remember all the people that brought us where we are today and music like this "got all of us over."

    God see all that we go thru in life and not one thing escapes his eye's, and he's there for us, and he's going to work them out on his time, for we know his timing is the best! As I'm going thru something right now he's already working it out for me, all I have to do is wait on him, so I encourage whoever out there or read this message stay focus on god, he'll never let you down like man!
