Consider

Consider 
The lilies of the field whose bloom is brief:– 
        We are as they; 
        Like them we fade away, 
As doth a leaf. 

        Consider 
The sparrows of the air of small account: 
        Our God doth view 
Whether they fall or mount,– 
        He guards us too. 

        Consider 
The lilies that do neither spin nor toil, 
        Yet are most fair:– 
        What profits all this care 
And all this coil? 

        Consider 
The birds that have no barn nor harvest-weeks; 
        God gives them food:– 
Much more our Father seeks 
        To do us good.

       – Christina G. Rossetti
