His Eye Is On The Sparrow ~ A Six Chord Song

His Eye Is On The Sparrow

G                             C                      G
Why should I feel discouraged why should the shadows come
E7                     Am     D7                      G
Why should my heart be lonely and long for heaven and home 
                            G7                 C Am
When Jesus is my portion my constant friend is He 
    D7            G                     D7      G
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me 
    G7            C             G       D7      G
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me 

  D7               G       D7               G    G7
I sing because I'm happy I sing because I'm free 
    C             G  D7 C         G       D7      G
His eye is on the sp-ar-row and I know He watches me 

                      C               G
Whenever I am tempted whenever clouds arise 
E7                       Am      D7                  G
When songs give place to sighing when hope within me dies 
                         G7                   C    Am
I draw the closer to Him from care He sets me free 
    D7            G                     D7      G
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me 
    G7            C             G       D7      G
His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me 

Repeat #2 x2

              C         G       C
And I know He watches I know He watches  
  G       D7      G
I know He watches me
I woke up this morning with this song in my heart.
It is one of my all time favorites and brings me such 
an overwhelming feeling of peace and of being truly loved.
I hope you enjoy it.
Have a wonderful day!
Connie :) 


  1. Very bad of me - long time since I touched my guitar :-(

  2. This is a beautiful song, Connie!

  3. This song is so beautiful! Thanks for sharing the inspiration ♥

  4. I've just decided to pay this blog a long overdue visit, Connie! It's great. How I wish I could hear you actually singing and playing the songs! I love the way you have decorated your guitar... perhaps I should do likewise on mine!! Perhaps some Zentangle? Lol! I love the words of this song. Do you know the Darlene Zscheck version?


  5. i found your place absolutely delightful and lovely dear friend .
    Best wishes for your singing !

  6. Connie, it's lovely to meet you and I see we share a favorite hymn that I find myself singing quite often. It's lovely here and I will follow. Have a beautiful day. ♥

  7. We enjoy this song. I have been thinking it would be a fun one to work on to play with my kids. We like to play bluegrass music together.

    1. Hi Abbi, it is one of my very favorite songs. What instruments do you and your family play?

  8. Hi Connie! I don't have a guitar but have always wished I could play one. I believe your posts would help me play one! I have a piano but have to use a book. I used to play in church; now I'm a bit rusty.

  9. What a lovely song. It is wonderful this song brings you such loving and peaceful feelings. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and new week ahead. Thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog.
