Matthew 6:26; Matthew 10:29-31 Text: Civilla Durfee Martin (1866-1948) Tune: Charles Hutchinson Gabriel (1856-1932) 1.

My constant Friend is He: //His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;// R/ I sing because I’m happy, o I sing because I’m free, For His eye is on the sparrow, o 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
