In the Beauty of the Lilies...

Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Luke 12:27


In the beauty of the Lilies
We can see the love of God.
They without a conscious effort,
Rise supreme above the sod,
Clothed in tents of radiant glory,
Each a message of creation,
Each a emblem of His love.


O ye souls that doubt and falter,
here is truth sublime that lives
In the flowers kissed by heaven,
Proving love divine He gives.
Are ye not of much more value
Than the lilies of the field?
Ye, believe, and faith returneth
More than wishful hope can yield.


Charles L.H. Wagner
