HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW  

NOTE: This is NOT the Lauryn Hill version.
      This chord chart is based on the ORIGINAL song and melody. 
      "His Eye Is on the Sparrow" is a Gospel hymn. 
      The song was written in 1905 by lyricist Civilla D. Martin 
      and composer Charles H. Gabriel.
      I hope you enjoy my chordal reharmonization of this hymn.

[VERSE 1]
C            Fmaj7   Cmaj7   C7
Why should I feel discour-aged?
F              Dm7     C   Cmaj7 
Why should the shadows come? 
Gm            A7       Dm7  Fm
Why should my heart be lonely,
G7sus4       G7/B       C 
And long for heav'n and home,
     C     Cmaj7  G7sus4  G7/B
When Jesus is my  porti - on?
   C        Gm        A7  Dm
My constant Friend is He:
    G      G7/F   C/E   Am7
His eye is on the spar-row, 
      Dm7     G7      C  G7  
And I know He watches me.
        C      C7/Bb   F/A   Fm/Ab
For His eye is on the  spar-row, 
      C/G     G7      C
And I know He watches me. 

[CHORUS]
  G      G7/B      C   C7   
I sing because I'm happy, 
  G      G7/B      C  E7/B 
I sing because I'm free;
        Am     Am7/G   F     Fm  
For His eye is on  the spar-row, 
      C/G     G7      C
And I know He watches me.

[VERSE 2]
 C            Fmaj7    Cmaj7  C7
"Let not your heart be trou-bled,"
F          Dm7      C  Cmaj7  
His tender word  I  hear; 
Gm          A7     Dm7   Fm
And resting on His goodness, 
G7sus4    G7/B      C 
I lose my doubt and fear. 
     C      Cmaj7   G7sus4  G7/B
Tho' by the path He lead - eth, 
    C        Gm     A7  Dm
But one step I may  see: 
    G      G7/F   C/E   Am7
His eye is on the spar-row, 
      Dm7     G7      C  G7  
And I know He watches me.
        C      C7/Bb   F/A   Fm/Ab
For His eye is on the  spar-row, 
      C/G     G7      C
And I know He watches me. 

[CHORUS]
  G      G7/B      C   C7   
I sing because I'm happy, 
  G      G7/B      C  E7/B 
I sing because I'm free;
        Am     Am7/G   F     Fm  
For His eye is on  the spar-row, 
      C/G     G7      C
And I know He watches me.

[VERSE 3]
C        Fmaj7  Cmaj7  C7
Whenever I  am  temp-ted,
F        Dm7    C  Cmaj7  
Whenever clouds a-rise, 
Gm              A7       Dm7   Fm
When song gives place to sigh-ing, 
G7sus4        G7/B   C 
When hope with-in me dies, 
  C        Cmaj7   G7sus4  G7/B
I draw the closer  to   Him; 
     C       Gm      A7  Dm
From care He sets me free:
    G      G7/F   C/E   Am7
His eye is on the spar-row, 
      Dm7     G7      C  G7  
And I know He watches me.
        C      C7/Bb   F/A   Fm/Ab
For His eye is on the  spar-row, 
      C/G     G7      C
And I know He watches me. 

[CHORUS]
  G      G7/B      C   C7   G      G7/B      C  E7/B 
I sing because I'm happy, I sing because I'm free;
        Am     Am7/G   F     Fm7/Eb    C/E     G7/B    C  G7
For His eye is on  the spar-row, And I know He watches me.
        C      C7/Bb   F/A   Fm/Ab     C/G     G7      C
For His eye is on the  spar-row, And I know He watches me.
