I vividly remember playing piano and singing “His Eye Is on the Sparrow” when I was in my teens. It was one of my favorite hymns to sing, and I didn’t know until recently that it was written in 1905. Clearly, it made no difference to me, or perhaps it did, since like many hymns and traditional tunes, it has endured for so long. The lyrics were written by Civilla D. Martin, and the music was composed by Charles H. Gabriel. If that name sounds familiar, you may remember
“Send the Light,”
which Gabriel also composed.
Today I hope you enjoy this lyre arrangement of “His Eye Is on the Sparrow!”
