Birds In Hymns – More Than These

Words by Ina D. Og­don, 1914 (1872-1964)

Music – “Ka­ra­chi” by Bentley D. Ackley (1872-1958)

More Than These

I need not trouble for the morrow,
For I am in my Father’s care;
He will go with me as I journey,
For all my need He will prepare.

Refrain

I know that He provides the lilies,
His eye each falling sparrow sees;
And so my soul will fear no evil,
For I am more to Him than these.

White-throated Sparrow (Zonotrichia albicollis) by Ray

White-throated Sparrow (Zonotrichia albicollis) by Ray

I need not either thirst or hunger;
His grace will never be denied;
He leads me to the living waters;
His daily manna is supplied.

Refrain

I know that He provides the lilies,
His eye each falling sparrow sees;
And so my soul will fear no evil,
For I am more to Him than these.

I need not an abiding city,
For I can tarry but a night;
My heart, my treasure, are in Heaven,
My raiment is a robe of white.

Refrain

I know that He provides the lilies,
His eye each falling sparrow sees;
And so my soul will fear no evil,
For I am more to Him than these.

Grasshopper Sparrow (Ammodramus savannarum) by Ray

Grasshopper Sparrow

O may my faith increase before Him,
My service here His blessing gain;
Let me seek first my Father’s kingdom,
For all beside must be in vain!

Refrain

I know that He provides the lilies,
His eye each falling sparrow sees;
And so my soul will fear no evil,
For I am more to Him than these.
