« Prev Consider the Lilies Next »


7s. M.


Consider the Lilies.

Lo, the lilies of the field!

How their leaves instruction yield!

Hark to nature’s lesson given

By the blessed birds of heaven!

Every bush and tufted tree

Warbles trust and piety:—

Mortals, banish doubt and sorrow,

God provideth for the morrow.

One there lives, whose guardian eye

Guides our earthly destiny;

One there lives, who, Lord of all,

Keeps His children lest they fall:

Pass we, then, in love and praise,

Trusting Him through all our days,

Free from doubt and faithless sorrow,—

God provideth for the morrow.
