Hand Painted Bird Artwork

Another pretty little table for sale

As a backyard birder, I enjoy attracting songbirds to my garden to observe. I used to see White Throated Sparrows regularly at my feeders in my old garden, so when inspiration struck to use some hand painted bird artwork to create this table, that’s the bird I wanted to paint. The words to a favorite old hymn came to me one night, just singing to be included.

Listen to Lauren Hill and Tanya Blount sing this beautiful hymn:

His Eye Is on the Sparrow

Civilla D. Martin, 1905

  • Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come,
    Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heav’n and home,
    When Jesus is my portion? My constant Friend is He:
    His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
    His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.
  • Refrain:
    I sing because I’m happy, I sing because I’m free,
    For His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.
  • “Let not your heart be troubled,” His tender word I hear,
    And resting on His goodness, I lose my doubts and fears;
    Though by the path He leadeth, but one step I may see;
    His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
    His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.
  • Whenever I am tempted, whenever clouds arise,
    When songs give place to sighing, when hope within me dies,
    I draw the closer to Him, from care He sets me free;
    His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
    His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

I hope you find as much meaning as I do in the words, as always your comments below are welcome, and encouraged!
