The Lilies of the Field (John Michael Talbot)





Consider the ravens
They do not sow and they do not reap
Yet God the Father provides for them
Yet upon the earth
These are among the smallest things

Consider how the lilies grow
They do not spin and they do not weave

But I tell you now not even Solomon
In all of his splendor was arrayed
Like any one of these

So seek ye first the kingdom of God
And the wealth of His righteousness
For wherever your treasure lies
There will you find your heart

Be not concerned for your life
Or your body
What to eat, what to wear
Or what you will do for tomorrow
Seek out instead His heavenly kingdom
And the rest upon the earth
In its own time will follow

So seek ye first the kingdom of god
And the wealth of His righteousness
For wherever your treasure lies
There will you find your heart

Composer: John Michael Talbot (b. 1954)
