Just something green and beautiful
All Things Bright and Beautiful | Cecil F. Alexander
Each little flow’r that opens,
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.
The purple-headed mountains,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brightens up the sky.
The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.
The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
To gather every day.
He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.
New International Version (NIV)
29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’
Matteus 7 : 28- 30
28 En wat bekommer julle julle oor klere?
Let op die veldlelies: hulle swoeg nie en hulle maak nie klere nie.
29 Maar ek se vir julle:
Selfs Salomo in al sy prag was nie geklee soos een van hulle nie.
30 As God dan die gras van die veld,
wat vandag nog daar is en more verbrand word,
hoeveel te meer sal Hy dan nie vir julle sorg nie,
