Full Text

1. If birds that neither sow nor reap
Nor store up any food
Constantly find to them and theirs
A Maker kind and good;

2. If man provide eke for his birds,
In yard, in coops, in cage;
And each bird spends in songs and tunes,
His little time and age;

3. What care will man, what care will God
For wife and children take?
Millions of birds and worlds will God
Sooner than His forsake.
