36 - His 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 heav地 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.
 
Refrein I sing because I知 happy (I知 happy),
I sing because I知 free (I知 free),
For His eye is on the sparrow,
and I know He watches me.
 
2 „Let not your heart be troubled,”
His tender word I hear,
And resting on His goodness,
I lose my doubts and fears;
Though 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.
 
3 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.
