Why should I be discouraged?
Why should the shadows come?
Why should my heart be lonely?
longing 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.

“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 leads me
but one step I may see:
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.
