Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Consider the lilies, how they bloom

Full Text

1 Consider the lilies, how they bloom,
They toil not, neither do they spin,
Toil not nor struggle all the day
The victory of faith to win.
They toil not, they toil not,
They toil not, neither do they spin;
Then trust Him and toil not,
The victory of faith to win.

2 Consider the sparrows, how they live;
Are ye not better far than these?
And He who marks the sparrow’s fall,
Your slightest want and sorrow sees.
Then fear not, then fear not,
For ye are better far than these;
Then fear not, then fear not,
For all your need your Father sees.

3 Consider the Savior’s dying love,
He gave Himself in love so true;
Then labor not your debt to pay,
For Jesus paid it all for you.
He loves you, He loves you,
He gave Himself in love so true;
He loves you, He loves you,
Yes, Jesus paid it all for you.
