his eye is on the sparrow lyrics – jessica simpson

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.

chorus:
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.

“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.

chorus:

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.

chorus
