Lyrics

Is not the life more than meat and the body than raiment;
Behold! the fowls of the air, for they sow not,
neither do they reap nor gather into barns;
yet your Heavenly Father feedeth them.

Consider the lilies of the field
how they grow they toil not
neither do they spin they toil not
neither do they spin
And yet I say unto you I say
unto you that even Solomon in all his glory
Was not arrayed like one of these
Consider the lillies how they grow
Consider the lillies how they grow
they toil not, they toil not,
neither do they spin, yet I say unto you,
Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed,
was not arrayed, like one of these
was not arrayed, was not arrayed like one of these,
and yet I say unto you, Solomon in all his glory
was not arrayed, was not arrayed,
was not arrayed like one of these
like one of these, like one of these.
