His Eye is on the Sparrow

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;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

This is My Father’s World

This is my Father's world,
And to my list'ning ears,
All nature sings,
and round me rings
The music of the spheres.
This is my Father's world, 
I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees,
of skies and seas-
His hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Father's world,
The birds their carols raise;
The morning light, the lily white
Declares their Maker's praise.
This is my Father's world.
He shines in all that's fair;
In the rustling grass
I hear Him pass, 
He speaks to me ev'rywhere.

This is my Father's world,
O let me ne'er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong
God is the Ruler yet.
This is my Father's world,
The battle is not done;
Jesus who died shall be satisfied,
And earth and heaven be one.
