His Eye Is On the Sparrow
"His Eye Is on the Sparrow" is based on a well-known, beloved gospel hymn that found wide use during the early to mid-twentieth century. This setting for handbells is harmonically rich with flowing accompaniment that builds into an exciting, full statement of happiness that comes from knowing that God watches over us, just as He watches over the sparrow. This thoughtful setting offers opportunities for ringing musically while using precise ringing and damping skills, and is appropriate for any occasion. Set in C Major, D Major, and G Major, this piece is 70 measures.
