Why should I feel discouraged?
Tell me why should the shadows fall?
Tell me why should my heart be lonely
And long for heaven and home?
When Jesus is my portion
A constant friend, oh, is He
For His eye is on the sparrow
And I know He watches me
I sing because I'm so happy
Everyday I sing because God made me free, yeah
Oh, His eye is on the sparrow, oh yeah
And I know, said I know, I know that, I know that, I know
You can't tell me that I don't know
I know that He watches me
