Hymn History:  His Eye Is On The Sparrow.   

"Jesus said:  Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows." (Mat 10:29-31)

When troubles and sickness come our way,

we usually turn to worry and fretting about

our situation.  Civilla Martin  (1869-1948)

the author of today's hymn had a friend who

had learned to rely on this verse and when

in 1904, sickness made her bed ridden she

continued  to  trust  in  God.   Seeing  the

testimony of her friend cause Civilla Martin

to pen the words to our hymn, "His Eye is On The Sparrow." 

  • The Lyrics:  His Eye Is On The Sparrow.

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 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;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

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 cares for me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He cares for 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
