God knows us all

Matthew 10:29-31 29

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. 30And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

This song was written by Salvation Army musicians John Gowans and John Larsson. It is a popular song for school assemblies and Sunday schools. Although it is a light-hearted melody, the lyrics are a strong reminder that God knows each one of us personally and by name.

I remember singing this song as a Singing Company member (junior choir in Salvation Army) and that was many moons ago.  Here it is again rearranged for Senior choirs in The Salvation Army a catchy little tune with simple words Teaching us how God knows every bird, flower, planet and of course you and me
