His Eye Is On The Sparrow (sung by Ethel Waters)

Why should I feel discouraged....why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely...and long for Heav'n and home
When Jesus is 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...

For His eye is on the sparrow...and I know He watches me.

written by Civilla Martin - music by Charles Gabriel

What a lovely blog you have, I'm a newbie blogger myself, and stumbled upon yours through another of my favorites "The Par Tea Planner".
I like yours very much and it has given me a few ideas to add to my own (I really like your song, I've never heard this version).
Have a nice day!
