Why should I feel discouraged?Why should the shadows come?Why should my heart feel lonelyAnd long for heaven and home?When Jesus is my portion,a constant friend is he.His eye is on the sparrowAnd I know he watches over me.His eye is on the sparrowAnd I know he watches meI sing because I'm happy.I sing because I'm free.His eye is on the sparrowAnd I know he watches me.His eye is on the sparrowAnd I know he watches me.
Before you all start thinking, "WTF?!?!?", I just wanted to post those lyrics because I have not stopped listening to them. Anyone remember which movie probably made this song more visible? Anyone remember who sang it in the movie? Actually, in the movie, they sang a small piece of the song. Years later, the two actresses came together to record the entire thing. Youtube it. The voices are uncanny.
Despite it's melancholy undertone, it's quite uplifting and inspiring. Even for someone like me who does not believe in a higher being. Later.
