Hill, Lauryn - His Eye Is On The Sparrow Lyrics




[Tanya Blount:]
Why should I feel discouraged
Why should the shadows come
Why should my heart feel lonely
And long for heaven and home

When Jesus is my portion
A constant friend is he
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know he watches over me
His eye is on the sparrow
And I know he watches me

[Lauryn Hill:]
I sing because I'm happy
I sing because I'm free
His eye is on the sparrow

And I know he watches me
[Tanya:] He watches me
[Lauryn:] His eye is on the sparrow
And I know he watches
[Tanya:] I know he watches
[Lauryn:] I know he watches me

[Lauryn and Tanya:]
I sing because I'm happy
I sing because I'm free
His eye is on the sparrow

[Lauryn:] And I know he watches me
[Tanya:] He watches me
[Lauryn and Tanya:] His eye is on the sparrow
[Tanya:] And I know he watches me
[Lauryn:] He watches me
[Tanya:] He watches me, I know
[Lauryn and Tanya:] He watches me

    Thank you Lord for giving me such a wonderful bunch of nuts for a family. They are truly my world. Thank you for your patience and blessings and mercy. Would you just throw down a blanket of divine protection over my family in this time and let us know that you have done a wonderful work in our lives. Please Lord give them peace of mind and love them though rough times, while understanding that none of us are a finished product yet. Show us what is still possible, that it may be used for your glory. Thank you Father. In Jesus name. Amen.

    The best rendition I’ve ever heard and it always made me tear up a little. I used to love singing it...
    It wasn’t until I heard at my grandfather’s funeral in 2015 that I actually sobbed and have ever since when i hear it...I picked it out just for him, as a version was sung at his wife’s, my grandmother, funeral in 1996 💓
