Religious Music – His Eye Is On The Sparrow lyrics
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.

    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!

    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!

    This song reminds me of God's love and kindness. It was a song my pastor sang to me as a message from God to me when i was going through difficult family situation. It showed me my God cares for me. It liberated me. He whom the Lord sets free is free indeed. Don't ever allow the price Jesus paid to be in vain in your life. Now when I am confronted with difficulties this song pulls me through reminding me that all I am going through my dear Lord knows and he cares. So I burst forth singing because I am happy in spite of my circumstances which I have handed over to him to enjoy his rest. Thank you Lord for the grace of understanding of your immeasurable love. Enjoy the song and live out its message.

    It gives me tremendous comfort to know that so many people depend on our loving God to take care of all their problems and that He watches over every single one of us, me included and protects us all with His immeasurable love. Thank you Jesus for dying for all of us unworthy though we are.

    We had a sparrow show up dead on our back deck and at the same time we had the TV on a religious station and a lady was playing on the piano the song "His eye is on the sparrow". The timing was amazing. I feel it was a sign that God is coming! Be ready!

    I have researched this amazing bird and am so impressed with his strength in spite of his size. However, one can squeeze him in the hand and crush every bone - but, His eye is on those who are strong who still needs His strength. I challenge you to do your own research on this amazing very small bird.

    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."

    Link to the history of what little we know of this song. This is my favorite song. Encourages your soul. It's so alive when you close your eyes to listen to it it makes you feel as if it was written by GOD personally to you and HE knew exactly what to say to encourage you to keep on living. I love songs that aren't just pretty lyrics, but songs that are strong and have character and meaning behind them and songs that become mentally alive in our souls and literally grab us tight and hold us up close to it as a good, first time mother holds her new born babe. Praise you JESUS all the goodness we possess comes only from you, and you are perfect in every and true therefore we created all things perfect and true in your heart and eyes. I love the LORD can you tell? I pray this song encourages others out of their struggles and helps them come to a closer relationship with It's original creator GOD and learns of the person GOD used to write this song so long ago that it still holds much value and meaning in our lives. TYJ (Thank You Jesus!)

    This song really ministers to me as I'm 62 years old, I'm the oldest person in my department, and eventually I'm going to have to move on. I also, am in the middle of a difficult family situation so, this song brings great joy, peace and rest knowing that irregardless of what tomorrow brings, He has my steps ordered and my paths directed. He fills me with great joy and peace even in the middle of the storm, and in spite of circumstances.
