1 I know who makes the daisies
And paints them starry bright;
I know who clothes the lilies,
So sweet and soft and white;
And surely needful raiment
He will for me provide,
Who know him as my Father,
And in his love confide,
Who know him as my Father,
And in his love confide.

2 I know who feeds the sparrow,
And robin red and gay;
I know who makes the sky-lark
Soar up to greet the day;
And me much more he cares for,
And feeds with daily bread,
Whom he has taught to love him,
And trust what he has said,
Whom he has taught to love him,
And trust what he has said.

3 The daisy and the lily
Obey him all they can;
The robin and the sky-lark
Fulfil his perfect plan;
And I, to whom are given
A heart, and mind, and will,
Must try to service him better,
And all his laws fulfill,
Must try to service him better,
And all his laws fulfill.
