A sparrow on mountain top far, far, away
Turned its eyes to heaven and began to say
Can you really see me God? Hear me when I pray?
Will you reeeally come – watch over me today?
When God’s angels heard, “This foolish bird!”
They gasped… and looked at God.
Would wrath replace His loving smile?
(They all began to nod.)
Surely impertinence like this
Would be met with lightening rod!
But God reached down and gathered up,
His frightened little bird…
And turned to speak, to angel host,
“Your judgements are absurd!”
Then He placed the little fellow,
Where he wouldn’t miss a word…
My dearest little sparrow,
I AM the God who hears,
All your questions, all your doubts,
And your every fear;
I AM the One, who gathers and saves,
Each tiny little tear!
When all gets dark, and you lose heart…
When hopes begin to quail,
When heaven seems like brass to you,
And songs turn into wails…
Remember, I AM watching…
And My grace will never fail!
Don’t fear what you can’t understand…
What trials and hardships there demand;
For each and every day on Earth,
I hold you… in My mighty hands!
Just trust, that everything’s designed…
According to My perfect plan!
In all of My creation, whether near or very far,
My eyes behold your greatest need,
… don’t wish upon a star!
But turn your eyes to Heaven,
For I’m watching where you are.
And if you need Me… I’ll be there!
I’ll take good care of you!
Before you call… I’ll answer;
Open up the skies of blue!
You’re My precious… tiny… sparrow,
What’s that? Ahhh, yes, I love you, too!
