Consider The Lilies
Music by Peter Link
Lyrics from Matthew 6

Take no thought for your life
What ye shall eat
Or what ye shall drink
Nor yet for your body
What ye shall put on

Is not your life more than the meat
And the body than raiment?
Are ye not much better than they?

Behold the fowls of the air
For they sow not
And nor do they reap
Or harvest for others
Yet God feedeth his own

Are ye not much better than they?

Consider the lilies of the field
How they grow
Oh how they grow
Consider the lilies of the field
They toil not
Neither do they spin

And yet I say unto you
That even Solomon in all his glory
Was not arrayed like one of these

And therefore take no thought
In wond’ring who will clothe
And who will feed us
And who will end this thirst within
No take no thought
For your heavenly Father knoweth
That ye have need of all these things

But now seek ye first
The hand of God
His righteousness
And all will be added
Take no thought for the morrow

The morrow shall take thought
For the things of itself

Consider the lilies how they grow
How they grow
Oh how they grow
How they grow
How they grow
