The Little Sparrow 



As I look out my window, I see on a very thin line
A little sparrow sitting as if he is lost in time.

A sparrow always has a song that comes from deep within
Never is he sad or burdened down with sin.



Yet he has no promise of a flight for tomorrow's song
Not knowing if what he is doing is right or wrong.

Not so with us, God has a special plan
For His pleasure and because of His love, he created man.



We have a promise of tomorrow and in our hearts should keep a song
There is a seed planted in our hearts to know right from wrong.

Sometimes when trials of life come, we feel we're on a very thin line
But even as he watches over the sparrow, we are first on his mind
