Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16
Verse 1: Consider the ravens, that sow not, nor reap. Nor store for another day; Yet God in His kindness supplies them their food; Are you not worth more than they?
Verse 2: Consider the lilies, that toil not, nor spin. Yet dress as a king would do, If God gives such clothes to the grass in the field, What clothes will He give to you?
Verse 3: Do not be concerned, then, for what you will eat, Or what you will drink, or wear; Your heavenly Father will give you these things; Tomorrow is in His care.
Chorus: The nations of earth gladly seek all these things, And God knows you need them too; But seek for His kingdom and righteousness first, And all these He’ll add to you.
