Lyrics
HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW
Words: Civilla D. Martin, 1905
Music: Charles H. Gabriel

(C)Why should I feel discouraged,(F) why should the shadows (C)come,
(A7)Why should my heart be (Dm)lonely, (G7)and long for heaven and (C)home,
When Jesus is my por(G7)tion? My (C)constant friend is (F)(A7)/E(Dm)He:

REFRAIN
His (G7)eye is on the (C)sparrow(C#dim7), and I (Dm7)know He (G7)watches (C)me;(G7)
His (C/E)eye is on the (F)sparrow(Fm), and I (C/G)know He watch(G7)es (C)me.
Refrain
I (G)sing because I’m (C)happy,
I (G)sing because I’m (C)free,
For His eye is (C7/E)on the (F)sparrow(Fm),
And I (C/G)know He watch(G7)es (C)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 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.
Refrain


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.
Refrain
