Lyrics

God loves the sparrowherder
And the sparrows love him too
They all follow in his footsteps
Just as I have followed you...
But you know god loves us most of all
When we're straying from the path
I would not put my trust in Jesus
To bring us all
To bring us all...

God loves the sparrowherder
Cos he sees himself within
You see a sparrow's wing, all dusty brown?
Well, it's radiant to him
So they follow in his footsteps
Just as I have followed yours
Cos god loves us most when we're ill at ease
When we're hiding from our flaws

Oh the blessed ones, they follow
He is tender, he is wise
And the sparrows see their radiance
Reflected in his eyes
For the sparrow's song is a broken song
But who are they to blame?
And I've learned the words so I sing along
Again and again and again and again

God bless the sparrowherder
He is gentle, he is kind
Are we fools to follow after?
Are they fools that stay behind?
For the song he sings is rich and sweet
And it leads us from the path
I would not put my trust in Jesus
To bring us all
To bring us all
To bring us all back
