His Eye is on the Sparrow  – Hymn History

Civilla Martin wrote:

“Early in the spring of 1905, my husband and I were sojourning in Elmira, New York. We contracted a deep friendship for a couple by the name of Mr. and Mrs. Doolittle, true saints of God.

Mrs. Doolittle had been bedridden for nigh twenty years. Her husband was an incurable cripple who had to propel himself to and from his business in a wheel chair. Despite their afflictions, they lived happy Christian lives, bringing inspiration and comfort to all who knew them.

One day while we were visiting with the Doolittles, my husband commented on their bright hopefulness and asked them for the secret of it. Mrs. Doolittle’s reply was simple: “His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.”

The beauty of this simple expression of boundless faith gripped the hearts and fired the imagination of Dr. Martin and me. The hymn “His Eye Is on the Sparrow” was the outcome of that experience.”
The next day she mailed the poem to Charles Gabriel, who supplied the music.

I Turn To You

Selah When I’m lost in the rain, In your eyes I know I’ll find the light to light my way. And when I’m scared, And losing ground, When my world is going crazy, You can turn it all around. And when I’m down you’re there – pushing me to the top. You’re always there, giving me all you’ve got. For a shield from the storm, For a friend, for a love to keep me safe and warm I turn to…

A “Hallelujah” Christmas by Cloverton

You Say – Laura Osborn

You Say Lauren Daigle I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I’m not enough Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low? Remind me once again just who I am, because I need to know (ooh oh) You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing You say I am strong when I think I am weak You say I…
