"His Eye is on the Sparrow"
This little sparrow reminded me of an old hymn we sang many years ago. Unfortunately we don't seem to sing it much now. "His Eye is on the Sparrow" written by Civilla D Martin. The tune was by Charles H Gabriel.
The words to the first stanza are:
"Why should I feel discouraged, Why should the shadows come, Why should my heart be lonely And long for Heav' n 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 cares for me.
The chorus follows with "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."
Lovely words that remind us that a loving Heavenly Father is not only watching over the Sparrow but He watches over us.
Hope all of you have a blessed week. Hugs Debbie
