His Eye On The Sparrow  Lauryn Hill

[C]Why should I feel discouraged,
[F]Why should the shadows come,        [C]       [G/B]
[G]Why should my heart b[A7]e lonely,     [D]    [F]
[G]And long for heav'n and home,    [C]   [G]
When Jesu[C]s is my portion, A constan[G]t Fri[C]end is He;               [F]   [A7]   [D]
His e[C]ye is on the sparro[F]w,        [A]
And I kno[C/G]w He watch[G]es me.      [C]


I[G] sing because I'm happy,[C]
I[G] sing because I'm free; [C]
For His eye is on the sparrow,[F/A]
And I kn[C/G]ow He watch[G]es me.     [C]

\"Let not your heart be troubled,\"

His tender word I hear,

And resting on His goodness,

I lose my doubts and fears,

Tho' by the path he leadeth,

But one step I may see;

His eye is on the sparrow,

And I know He watches me.


Whenever I am tempted,

Whenever clouds arise,

When song gives 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.
