Inspiration Singers – CONSIDER THE LILIES
“Consider The Lilies” was written by Joel Hemphill who was the leader of his singing family and their group, The Hemphills. He based this song on a portion of the beautiful words from Jesus’ Sermon on The Mountain.
Matthew 6:28-34 (KJV)
6:28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
6:29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
6:30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, [shall he] not much more [clothe] you, O ye of little faith?
6:31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
6:32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day [is] the evil thereof.
We are very happy to present our own, very special version of, “Consider The Lilies” as the girls blend their voices in sweet harmony. Be sure to listen closely, as we have penned and added a verse to the original song. With comforting words and a soothing tune, this song ranks among our favorites.
