How those harried humans hurry
Rushing, racing, really stressed
Wearied with the weight of worry
Down in doldrums and distressed
While Lily lives in languid rest.
Stock shareholders fashion futures
On the money market’s gain
Set their sights on ‘secure supers’
Able audits ascertain—
So few fear fiscal future’s wane.
Waging wars with wicked weapons
Nations gnashing needlessly
Terrorism’s tumult threatens
Unsettles state stability
Transforming their tranquillity!
Chasing shadows seems such folly
To Lily lazing by the Loch;
All the lilies of the valley
Far from reach of wretched clock
Mankind’s machinations mock.
Solomon though gowned in glitter
Lacked the looks of lovely Lil’--
Bounteous beauty none can better
Matters not man’s might or skill,
She’s modelling her Master’s will.
Not His will that we would worry
Strive and strain like serving slaves
Prone so much to scoot and scurry
Restless ‘till the wretched grave—
So unlike Lily man behaves!
Bowed beneath the breeze’s bending
Soaking sunlight’s streaming sheen
Thriving, trusts the Master’s tending
Attests in silence so serene
Omnipotence o’ersees the scene.
Troubled with tomorrow’s thinking?—
Seek instead His righteousness;
Tomorrow’s taken in a twinkling;
Reside in His redeeming rest
In Heaven’s holy happiness.
