Verse 1

 

C                       G               Am                 F

Jesus stood one day, at the treasury of the temple

C                              F                         G

Watching great and small bring their tithes

C                   G                    Am              F

As He gazed upon them He spied an old widow

C                        F                         G

Casting her two mites among the crowd

 

Am              F

See this old woman,

G                                        C

She’s given more than they all

Am         G                F

For she gave all that she had

 

Chorus

 

G                      C            Em7    Am

For the eyes of the Lord are on the widows and the children

F                        C                       G

He’s mindful of them each and every day

F                          G           C          Em7      Am

And those who would care for widows and for children

F                           G                             C

Will find their lives are blessed in a special way

 

Verse 2

 

C                         G                Am           F

Suffer the young children to come unto me

C               F                        G

For such is the kingdom of our God

C                            G           Am                   F

And if you’d enter in to the glories of your Father

C          F                          G

You must become like one of them

Am                     F

They receive my love

G                             C

Trusting whatever I say

Am       G                F

For they believe that I AM

 

Chorus

 

G                      C            Em7    Am

For the eyes of the Lord are on the widows and the children

F                        C                       G

He’s mindful of them each and every day

F                          G           C          Em7      Am

And those who would care for widows and for children

F                           G                             C

Will find their lives are blessed in a special way

 

Verse 3

 

C                         G                Am                      F

My sons and my daughters I love you one and all

C                     F                        G

I count the very hairs upon your head

C                 G          Am                F

Love one another as I have loved you

C                            F                        G

Give yourselves to those in need of bread

Am                  F

For if you care for these

G                   C

The least of them all

Am          G                 F

Then you have loved me as well

 

Chorus

 

G           C           Em7     Am

For my eyes are upon my widows and my children

F                       C                       G

I’m mindful of them each and every day

F                          G                C            Em7     Am

And those who would care for my widows and my children

F                                 G                         C

Will find I’ve blessed their lives in a special way

F                           G                 C           Em7     Am

Those who would care for my widows and my children

F                                 G                         C

Will find I’ve blessed their lives in a special way
