Representative Text

1 When little sparrows, flitting by,
Are known to Him who dwells on high,
And noted when they perish;
How great a love do we behold,
Of watchful shepherd to his fold,—
A love to laud and cherish,
A love to laud and cherish.

A gentle shepherd is the Lord,
A mighty sceptre is His word,
His loving eye watch o’er us,
And guide the way before us.

2 When million heads of myriad hairs,
Are not beneath the heav’nly cares,
And ev’ry hair is number’d;
How great a care must God above
Bestow upon His child of love,—
Upon the soul encumbered,
Upon the soul encumbered. [Refrain]

3 A little child, tho’ dead from pain,
Was brought to life and health again,
Thro’ a father’s mere believing;
How much the more in Heaven high,
Will Jesus hear our pleading cry,
And spare the heart from grieving,
And spare the heart from grieving. [Refrain]
