Christina Rossetti: Consider

Updated February 28, 2017 | Infoplease Staff

Consider

(Macmillan's Magazine, Jan. 1866.)
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.
