Hang On Tight

"Get a grip on hope and hang on tight, Hope is the rope that rescues us from despair and lethargy. Hang on tight and keep expecting God to work a miracle in your life."


The trials I continue to experience in my journey have taught me a very valuable lesson: unceasing faith in the Lord will see me through. People change. Those I trusted have failed me, and those who care for me are not always there in times of need. However, there is one person whom I can always depend upon. He wants me to be strong and courageous and not to be terrified and discouraged for He will be with me wherever I go (Joshua 1: 9).

The song, "His Eye Is On The Sparrow", is a beautiful expression of ceaseless faith in the Lord:

Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heaven 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.

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.

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.

Whenever I am tempted, whenever clouds arise,
When songs give place to sighin, when hope within me dies,
I draw thee 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 sing because I'm happy,
I sing because I'm free,
For His eye is on the sparrow,
And I know He watches me.
