Why do I feel discourged
Why do the shadows come
And why does my heart feel lonely
And long for heaven and home
When Jesus is my portion
A constant friend is He
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me


So I sing because I'm happy
And I sing because I'm free
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me

So I sing because I'm happy
And I sing because I'm free
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He wathces
And I know He watches
And I know He watches me

    I believe that in each of our lives, in triumphs,stumbles and falls
    that God is continuing to watch over us,his creatures great and small.
    And from that,we should be encourage,and happy to know that NO matter what stumbles,or falls that comes our way.that God is there with us, in all those days.
