Description

"Look at the birds. They don't plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren't you far more valuable to him than they are?" - Jesus

I didn't sit down and say to myself, "Ok, I'm going to write a worship song." Instead, Sparrows came about very organically. The melody and lyrics both developed over the period of a month or so this past Spring. They came to me during my morning prayer times when I would listen to and watch the various birds singing their morning songs outside of my living room window. I realized that there's simple yet profound beauty and joy to be found in the song of a bird. They are seemingly insignificant creatures yet they haven't a care in the world. My hope is that 'Sparrows' can be a song that encourages us to remember the simple joys in life and be content with what we have.

The bonus track, Be Thou My Vision (Beautiful Savior), is a bit of a modern twist on a well known traditional hymn. The verses are all traditional and the chorus (or bridge you might call it) came about in a similar vain to 'Sparrows.'
