Eye on the Sparrow

Lyrics

Come Ye Blessed (on Eye on the Sparrow)

A much-loved old favorite with immense appeal. The text is one of the most loved from the Christian scriptures: a parabolic urging to brotherly love and the promise of God's eternal goodness.
by John Prindle Scott
Text: Matthew 25: 34-36

Then shall the King say unto them upon his right hand:

Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

I was an hungred and ye gave me meat: I was athirst, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: naked and ye clothed me: I was sick and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

Therefore, come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. Come ye blessed of my Father. Come.
