Audrey Assad - Sparrow Lyrics




Why should I be lonely,
Long for heaven and home
When Jesus is my portion
And a constant Friend I know

I sing because I'm happy,
I sing because I'm free
For His eye is on the sparrow,
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He's watching me

Why should I be troubled
When His tender word I hear
Know I rest on His goodness
In my doubt and in my fear

I sing because I'm happy,
I sing because I'm free
For His eye is on the sparrow,
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know...

I sing because He loves me,
I sing because I'm free
For His eye is on the sparrow,
His eye is on the sparrow
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He's watching me
He's watching me
He's watching you
He's watching me

    My husband and I are expecting our first baby (baby girl). And, her name is Sparrow. Love playing this for her! ❤️💜💕

  2. Bilson Simamora

    It seems that she believes every word she sung

  3. Quill Inkwell

    Absolutely beautiful voice

  4. BeachGunner

    Wow..I mean wow. What a voice.

  5. Fernanda Ferreira

    Salve Maria!

    I FEED THE BIRDS EVERY DAY. I POUR A CROSS ON THE GROUND THEN SCATTER SOME AROUND FOR HIS SH'KINAH GLORY!!! I GOT UP THIS DAY & IT WAS -25° WITH HIGH WINDS, A BLIZZARD. SO I ASKED JESUS IF THERE WAS ANY USE FOR ME TO GO OUT & FEED THE BIRDS. WENT TO THE KITCHEN WINDOW & THERE WERE A FEW SPARROWS HOLDING ON TO THE ICED OVER AREA. THEY COULD SEE SOME PREVIOUS SEED BUT COULDN'T GET AT IT. SO I HAD MY ANSWER. BUNDLED UP, GOT MY SEED MUGS & A SWISS GEAR WALKING STICK. IT HAS A FEATURE AT THE BOTTOM CALLED A 'SNOW BASKET', A SOLID 3" PIECE FOR HELPING THE TIP GO INTO THE SNOW. GOT OUT THERE, POURED THAT SEED ON THE GROUND & "WHOOSH!!!" IT WAS 2 STATES AWAY IN SECONDS! I THOUGHT, 'WHAT WAS THE POINT, JESUS?'... AS I TURNED TO GO BACK IN, I "" RANDOMLY "" POKED THAT WALKING STICK INTO A SNOWBANK BEHIND ME. KINDA LIKE IN 1 KINGS 22:34. I TURNED AROUND TO LOOK & WHERE I HAD POKED WAS DARK. SO I REACHED DOWN & GRABBED A LITTLE WING & "BAM!!!" OUT COMES A SPARROW!!! IT WAS STILL DARK SO I REACHED DOWN AGAIN & "BAM!!!" OUT COMES ANOTHER SPARROW!!! THEY WERE IN THIS SNOWBANK 6" TO 8" DEEP & A FEW FEET FROM THE END. BEEN THERE ALL NIGHT. ONE MUST'VE FOUND A HOLE & THE OTHER RATPACKED IT IN. THEN THEY WERE COVERED OVER & SEALED IN. IF I WOULD'VE BEEN A HALF AN INCH OFF WHEN I STABBED THAT WALKING STICK INTO THE SNOW, I WOULDNT HAVE SEEN THEM, HALF INCH THE OTHER WAY, I WOULD'VE HIT IT IN ITS HEAD. OUR GREAT KING OF KINGS SENT ME OUT ON THE VERY WORST DAY IF THE YEAR, AT "RANDOM" TO SET THOSE 2 ENTRAPPED SPARROWS FREE. JESUS SAYS, "WE ARE WORTH MANY SPARROWS." TELL SOMEONE ABOUT JESUS. WE ARE HIS SPARROWS & SO ARE THE UNSAVED. THE LOST ARE STILL IN THAT 'SNOWBANK'. PRAISE THE LORD! RANDY

    Why should I be lonely,
    Long for heaven and home
    When Jesus is my portion
    And a constant Friend I know

    I sing because I'm happy,
    I sing because I'm free
    For His eye is on the sparrow,
    His eye is on the sparrow
    And I know He's watching me

    Why should I be troubled
    When His tender word I hear
    Know I rest on His goodness
    In my doubt and in my fear

    I sing because I'm happy,
    I sing because I'm free
    For His eye is on the sparrow,
    His eye is on the sparrow
    And I know...

    I sing because He loves me,
    I sing because I'm free
    For His eye is on the sparrow,
    His eye is on the sparrow
    His eye is on the sparrow
    And I know He's watching me
    He's watching me
    He's watching you
    He's watching me

  18. Charles Clarance

    Very Cool. Worship is awesome !!

  19. emoclew Barbz

    This is what I listen to when meditating about Psalms 23. When I'm troubled, and stressed and pulled by the weight of this world. Cast your cares to Jesus because He cares for you and trade your burdens for His because His burden is light. Wonderful song.

    Padraic Fanning

    “Behold the birds of the air, for they neither sow, nor do they reap, nor gather into barns: and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not you of much more value than they?” —Matthew 6:26, Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition

  20. Marvin Sajche

  35. KIN

    Just beautiful. I wonder, Audrey, if you've been musically influenced by Bruce Hornsby. I hear a little of him in your piano playing :) You're a wonderful Artist, Audrey.

  36. jay walker

    god is spirit and it is just that simple so illuminated video guy seek and you will find lose the world because the world will misled you and let you down try and sing the lyrics to sparrow and see what happens jamie tulsa ok

  37. lxGlitchDaysxl

    I am Agnostic but this is beautiful music

    lxGlitchDaysxl

    @Grace White Nah I'd rather read something more interesting...
    I don't care to get in debates about god or learn about god
    I'm not convinced.. now if someone presents the evidence..
    I'll be happy to look it over and give my opinion..
    but until then.. I can only live.

    Grace White

    @illuminated videos the book does that! That's why I like it so much, because it is really short and to the point and it presents the evidence very well. I had some doubts about God (don't we all) and it helped me come to the truth. Might as well read it :D if you do tell me what you think :)

    jay walker

    @illuminated videos the spirit of god is real that the reason you are touched by audrey singing the spirit flows thru her and the music to surrender to god is so simple yet complex but once you tune the feeling is incredible the love of god god bless jamie oklahoma

    Kurt Borges

    +illuminated videos: Are you convinced of your own existence or does someone need to present the evidence?

  49. ernesto jr. dadula

  50. Rob Webb

    I'm glad there is people that can sing these songs without crying. I can't get through songs like this without breaking at certain points. 

  51. Chandler Leighton

    I don't know if anyone has noticed this yet, but she always seems to mention "his goodness" in a lot of her songs... I don't know if this is a coincidence or a recurring theme for a reason.

    Charles Clarance

    His goodness is great. Ps 23 .

    INSPIRE

    Chandler Leighton yes that is a great influence in her writing.

    INSPIRE

    Chandler Leighton do you write songs? Chandler

    Colleen Posadas

    Chandler Leighton it's a recurring theme in the Bible! This is an old hymn.

  56. Mandeep Bryant

    WOW!!! Loving all the songs in this nugget!!! God's promises for us are real and it is such a blessing when the LORD brings these back to our remembrance ...even through song!!! :))))

  61. Ysaias Paul

    I love this song! Bless you!

  62. missionshk

    it was a question for Audrey, actually.

  63. mysource11

    Why am I worshipful? We are born to worship the Lord - our heavenly Father, our Creator. My soul, and I are say the souls of all mankind cry out to worship our God who made us with a purpose in mind, a crafted vessel for His use, for no other reason that it pleases HIM. One of the greatest releases of our worship is through music itself. The Bible says He inhabits the praises of His people, and I want to dwell with Him in the mystery of His love and mercy.

  64. missionshk

    WHY ARE YOU SO WORSHIPFUL? WHAT MADE U LIKE THIS? what is your spiritual walk that brought u here? love to hear that

    thanks on behalf of whole family< we love u!!

  65. JesusLivesandRules

    Wow , I just heard Audrey for the very first time at Harvest.org worship service today, and I had to search for more of her beautiful voice. I have a new female gospel singer. Simply amazing gift she has been given from God. <3

  66. Chrissie

    I wish I could "like" this more than once.

  67. Aly Uy

    Good - o = God.

    Question of the universe answered right there. Beat that, Doctor.

  68. GeeGee's Sober Son

    I saw her yesterday...i wanted to hug herrrr._.

  69. Williams Diego

  73. eri huinil

    Q GRAN VIDEO

  74. Steven Davis

    Saw you perform this in Livermore. Love this song. So heartfelt.

  75. Eliziane Mota

    I LOVE SO MUCH AUDREY........BEAUTIFUL VOICE

  76. Loren Cheathem

    WOO HOO! Preach it Audrey!! You go girl!!!

  77. Jordan Gonzalez

    Just saw her live last night. Her CD's are beautiful, but they don't do her justice. Her voice is even better live. Hearing her sing this live in concert was just so amazing.

  78. Jordan Gonzalez

    Seeing her in a few weeks! :)

  79. Eli Samuel

    Beautiful voice! You're a gifted young woman.
    This is a great song.
    God Bless you Audrey!

  80. ccm2Dmax

    My mom use to sing the old time version of this. I loved hearing it flow though the walls of our house when i was little. Audrey's voice is calming. Her songs are captivating. Use her for Your glory God!

  81. Michael Jenkins

    Love how she sounds.

  82. Phillip Leão

    Broken link!

  83. katyktk8y

    Actually if you listen to the live version of Breaking You, it's even more prominent. Anyway, I'll just go and enjoy the music now without being overly-technical about it :)

  84. katyktk8y

    Completely agree with this. Much more relaxed tempo with this Live Version! I almost can't believe it's live sometimes.

  85. ccm2Dmax

    i agree with you. and i believe she loves the Lord.

  86. David Roberts

    This arrangement is awesome. Perfect modernization of a hymn. The album version sounds too 'techno' and the drum pattern pushes the beat too much, but this live version is FANTASTIC. Everyone's playing skillfully, but no one is overplaying. Wish I could buy this one. It's rare to see an artist whose live take is better than the album version. Hats off to you Audrey, this is an inspiration

  87. Andrius Sampaio

    I love this song. God bless you, Audrey. The Lord has strengthened me through this song.

  88. Truth Shockwave

    Why should I be lonely? Because I am not with my love and although this song brings me to tears Nothing can replace having someone love you passionately.

  89. Amber Allen

    Audrey, I cannot believe your voice! Words cannot describe the perfection and captivating beauty.... <3 <3 <3 God bless you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  90. Shofarboyz

    Like to see Audrey and Json colaborate

  91. Anitha Varghese

    This song is just beautiful!!!

  92. Trini Crocker

    I LOVE THIS SONG!!!! As in, there aren't any words to describe how much I love this song! It is SO TRUE, too!!!!!! God cares for the birds! Why shouldn't He care for us, then, too??!

  93. Olivia Manogue

    Such a beautiful song to lift my spirit. I recently lost my mom, an uncle and a dear friend and 5 other loved ones since Oct. 2011. My mom passed away March 18, 2012. This song is so comforting and I have been sharing it with anyone who will listen. Thank you for such a beautiful rendition! God Bless You! : )

  94. OL8Twho

    Audrey, I was very impressed by this song and the beautiful talent that God has given you. Enjoyed the show in Corvallis Oregon last night. Harmonies with JJ and David were heavenly! God bless

  95. Josh Blaha

    Every time I hear this song I fall in love with it all over again! Thank you so much for letting God use you to minister to us, Audrey!

  96. Dillon Munoz

    Beautiful. Love the piano and your voice

  97. David Needham

    reminds me of lauryn hill killin' it on Sister Act 2 during the song Sparrow.

  98. marcheline717

    I love the way she's singing: "He's watching You..." (at 3:15) This is just so, so lovely! Im proud of You, Audrey. :) Your songs are wonderful! I'm in love with Your new album called "Heart" :)

    Quill Inkwell

    I agree!

    Quill Inkwell

    Gave me chills
