475. God's Eye Is on the Sparrow

1 Why should I feel discouraged,
why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely,
and long for heaven and home,
When God is ever my portion?
My constant Friend will be:
God's eye is on the sparrow,
and I know God watches me;
God's eye is on the sparrow,
and I know God watches me.

Refrain:
I sing because I’m happy,
I sing because I’m free,
God's eye is on the sparrow,
and I know God watches me.

2 “Let not your heart be troubled,”
Christ's tender word I hear,
And resting on God's goodness,
I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path God leads me
but one step I may see;
God's eye is on the sparrow,
and I know God watches me;
God's eye is on the sparrow,
and I know God watches me. [Refrain]

3 Whenever I am tempted,
whenever clouds arise,
When song give place to sighing,
when hope within me dies,
I then draw the close to my Savior,
from care I am set free:
God's eye is on the sparrow,
and I know God watches me;
God's eye is on the sparrow,
and I know God watches me. [Refrain]
