Joy of Worship

From Psalm 84:3-4:  “Even the sparrow finds a home and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at Your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.  Happy are those who live in Your house, ever singing Your praise.”

Dwelling in God’s house

Joy of worship sings

Grace always flowing

From eternal springs


Lord ever present

Blessing living things

Promises now filled

Trust in Lord shall ring


Sparrows and swallows

Building each new nest

Creation’s new home

God never at rest


Signs of Father’s love

Worshipping with praise

Spirit of hope breathes

Strength in Him shall raise


Walking with Jesus

Peace never departs

Favor and honor

Love fills every heart

With lyrics inspired from Psalm 32:8 (words of David) and Matthew 8:26 (words  of Jesus), the Gospel-rich hymn of “His Eye is on the Sparrow” shares a stirring and encouraging message.  Civilla D Martin wrote these lyrics in 1905 with the composition from Charles H. Gabriel.
