His eye is on the sparrow

So many kind words of encouragement and I cherish them all.

"You are braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."  Christopher Robin




His Eye Is On the Sparrow
words by Civilla Martin

Why should I feel discouraged,
Why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely,
And long for heaven and home,
When Jesus is my portion?
My constant friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches 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.

"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.

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.

  1. Thank-you so much for sharing this. I am truly sorry to read this, but know that the Lord has big plans for that small child. I love the Christopher Robin quote. I used that in the dedication page of my dissertation as words to my precious nephews. They hold a lot of meaning. Sending much love and prayers to the amazing King family.
