Sunday's Song- His Eye Is On The Sparrow

We had another death in our family, another cousin.  It's weird, I saw him on Tuesday at my other cousin's funeral and he was fine, then he died on Thursday.  You just never know when it's your time.  That is why I hope each of you know Jesus as your Savior, so that even if I don't get to meet you down here, we can meet one day in Heaven!

His Eye Is On The Sparrow

1. 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. 

2. "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. 

3. Whenever I am tempted, 
 whenever clouds arise, 
 when song gives 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.

Your family is really suffering loss. It is good to hear you speak of Jesus and His salvation, and reminds us life is so fleeting, Jesus is NOT!It is sad to miss loved ones though....sorry for your family's loss.
