Larry’s lovely approachable setting will warm the hearts of any audience. Written in 1905 by Charles Gabriel, the song became the title of Ethel Waters’ autobiography. Then Lauren Hill performed a stirring rendition in the movie “Sister Act” – remember?

LYRICS

Why should I feel discouraged,
why should the shadows come?
Why should my heart fell lonely,
longing for heaven and home?
When Jesus is my portion, a contant friend is He.
For 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,
His eye is ont he sparrow, and I know He cares for me.

God see the little sparrow fall, 
ir meets His tender view
If God can love the little bird
I know He loves me, too.
