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
