PRAISE  TIME

“ Open Our Eyes, Lord" # 2086 TFWS lyrics

"Consider the Lilies "
Don’t store up treasures on earth where thieves can destroy and
break through. Store up your wealth where it cannot be lost,
And there will your heart be too.

Give God first place in your life. Give Him your joy.
Give Him your sorrow. Give Him your talents, your trust and time,
And God will take care of tomorrow.

God will provide for Your life, the things that you need day to day.
See how He cares for the birds in the air,
And you are worth more than they.

Give God first place in your life. Give Him your joy.
Give Him your sorrow. Give Him your talents, your trust and time,
And God will take care of tomorrow.

Take no concern for your clothes. Consider the lilies that grow.
Solomon’s robes never once equaled theirs.
What splendor God can bestow.

Give God first place in your life. Give Him your joy.
Give Him your sorrow. Give Him your talents, your trust and time,
And God will take care of tomorrow.

God will supply for each day. Already He knows what You need.
Pray and believe in the promise He made,
And Christ then can intercede.

Give God first place in your life. Give Him your joy.
Give Him your sorrow. Give Him your talents, your trust and time,
And God will take care of tomorrow.
