So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Matthew 10:31 (NIV)


The song ‘More Than Many Sparrows’ [http://www.andyseveryn.com/video] was written by Andy Severyn who was a leader of the 'Cross Purposes' School Mission Team of the Sion Catholic Community. I owned a much loved tape that included the song after meeting another member of the Schools Team when performing Christian Theatre and Dance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and played it to stretching point! As some songs do, it remained a favourite that I returned to year after year and it was a pleasure to use it as inspiration for my work. Holy Island is blessed to be home to more than its fair share of sparrows too and they are a daily reminder of how much God loves and values each one of us.

More Than Many Sparrows (used in the piece and reprinted here with permission)

I know a boy who once believed
That he was not worth much at all
If he passed exams or scored a goal
He would win some brief applause
Then back again to try again
To get some more attention
Look at me, can’t you see
I just want to be known

Those words were mine, but since those days
Someone showed me what I’m worth
Just the same as any man
Or any woman on this earth
He died for me to set me free
From thinking that I’m not loveable
He died for you to say to you
“This is what you’re worth…”

More than many sparrows
More than brightest gold
You’re worth more than people tell you
So much more than people know
Someone put a price on you
He said, “You’re worth dying for”
Yes, you’re precious in the eyes of the Lord

So there’s no need to be afraid
That we don’t deserve his love
Good or bad, great or small
It’s a free gift from above
So let him in, let him bring
The truth your heart is waiting for
Jesus lives, Jesus gives
The value of your heart
