Look and Learn

Representative Text

1 Look and learn from the birds of the air,
flying high above worry and fear;
neither sowing nor harvesting seed,
yet they’re given whatever they need.
If the God of earth and heaven
cares for birds as much as this,
won’t he care much more for you,
when you put your trust in him?

2 Look and learn from the flowers of the field,
bringing beauty and color to life;
neither sewing nor tailoring cloth,
yet they’re dressed in the finest attire.
If the God of earth and heaven
cares for flowers as much as this,
won’t he care much more for you,
when you put your trust in him?

3 What God wants should be our will;
where God calls should be our goal.
When we seek the kingdom first,
all we’ve lost is ours again.
Let’s be done with anxious thoughts,
set aside tomorrow’s cares,
live each day that God provides,
putting all our trust in him.
