Why should I feel discouraged,
Why should the shadows come,
Lord why, why should my heart, my heart feel
Lonely,
And long for heaven, heaven and home, oh yes
When, when Jesus is my portion,
My constant Friend is he;
Oh, oh-oh, his eye is on the sparrow, oh yes i-i-i
And I know He watched, whatched it over me.

Chorus:
I sing because I'm happy (happy)
I sing because I'm free (free free free)
For His eye, his eye is on the sparrow,
And I know, I know He watches(thank you lord)over me
