Lo the lilies of the field - Fifteenth Sunday after Trinity
(Reginald Heber/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Fifteenth Sunday after Trinity.

1. Lo the lilies of the field,
  how their leaves instruction yield!
Hark to Nature’s lesson given
  by the blessed birds of Heaven!
Every bush and tufted tree
  warbles sweet philosophy:
"Mortal, fly from doubt and sorrow;
  God provideth for the morrow!

2. Say, with richer crimson glows
  the kingly mantle than the rose?
Say, have kings more wholesome fare
  than we, poor citizens of air?
Barns nor hoarded grain have we,
  yet we carol merrily.
Mortal, fly from doubt and sorrow!
  God provideth for the morrow!

3. One there lives whose guardian eye
  guides our humble destiny;
One there lives who, Lord of all,
  keeps our feathers lest they fall:
pass we blithely then the time,
  fearless of the snare and lime,
free from doubt and faithless sorrow;
  God provideth for the morrow!"

Reginald Heber, Heber's Hymns, 1870, 66.
