Subject: ISO Bluegrass Gospel song about Sparrow
From: open mike
Date: 02 Aug 09 - 11:42 AM

Lyric Req--there is a bluegrass gospel song which has a sparrow in it
which starts out with "you may think you're the center of the world"

I think i heard it by Kathy Kallick or Sally Van Meter or Laurie Lewis

I think it goes on to say the sparrow is the center of the world

but can't find it now..does this "ring a bell" with any cats out there?...

it is not this song, but this is good too.

in our hearts we know we're wrong-
God made the sparrow the center of the world!"

I looked around for a few minutes this morning..figured you'd have an answer by the time I got back home!

I'll give it another whirl to see if I have any luck.

I don't see it in this list and you've probably already found this site..pasting it here in case it has a different name (or in case you didn't catch it while you were looking)

Alas, lyrics from the "Part of a Story" album are among the missing on Kathy's
website. But here's her "Center of the World":      
      CENTER OF THE WORLD

You think you're the center of the world
I think I'm the center of the world
In our hearts we know we're wrong
God made the sparrow the center of the world

God made the sparrow humble and strong
He made his life so it moves along
The sparrow's life is to suffer and toil
God made the sparrow the center of the world

You think you're the center of the world
I think I'm the center of the world
In our hearts we know we're wrong
God made the sparrow the center of the world

Well the meek shall inherit the world one day
That's what we're told, that's what they say
But if you're weak and you lose your way
Then the strong shall rule the world today

You think you're the center of the world
I think I'm the center of the world
In our hearts we know we're wrong
God made the sparrow the center of the world

Well if you're a lover then you live to please
And if you're a mother then you love with ease
And if you're a sinner you get down on your knees
And if the sparrow falls then the Lord will see

God made the sparrow the center of the world
You think you're the center of the world
I think I'm the center of the world
God made the sparrow the center of the world
I'll put an audio track on her site later today.
—BK

Great job, BK Lick!

Laurel, I've added a link to that post on the Religious Songs That Speak To You thread. That way any readers of that thread who are also interested in the words to that song can read them here.

Chipping Sparrow, Song Sparrow, yes! I HOPE it's not the English Sparrow.If so, God can please clean up the window air conditioning units, outside air ducts and wherever else their nests foul things up. Most other sparrows can sing pleasantly, as well....


Otherwise, we might as well be singing "His Eye Is On The Starling"....
