Seek Ye First / Seek ye first not earthly pleasure [#SeekYeFirst #SeekYeFirstNotEarthlyPleasure #NotEarthlyPleasure]

Song based on the Bible verses:

Matthew 6:25-34

25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?

28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

Seek ye first not earthly pleasure
Fading joy and failing treasure
But the love that knows no measure
Seek ye first seek ye first

Seek ye first God’s peace and blessing
Ye have all if this possessing:
Come your need and sin confessing
Seek Him first seek Him first

Seek this first—be pure and holy
Like the Master meek and lowly
Yielded to His service wholly
Seek this first seek this first

Seek the coming of His kingdom
Seek the souls around to win them
Seek to Jesus Christ to bring them
Seek this first seek this first

Seek this first His promise trying
It is sure all need supplying
Heav’nly things on Him relying
Seek ye first seek ye first
