Is Not Life More Than Food?
A song for the words of Matthew 6:25 & 31

"Is not life more than food?" said Jesus.  These are very troubling times, but He told us that not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without our Father in heaven knowing.

Shown below is an "easy piano" arrangement of this song.  I do have a more intricate arrangement, which I'll try to post shortly.  There will also be another version of this easy piano arrangement, but in the key of C.

The words of these Bible verses seem very pertinent right now, as our government has locked down the country, and people are losing their jobs,  businesses, and personal liberty, too, I fear.

We need to think on the things that are eternal, even as we plan for temporal necessities.

Here is a lead sheet for the Matthew 6 song, in the keys of C and D:

IS NOT LIFE MORE THAN FOOD?


Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?

Look at the birds of the air.

Sowing not, reaping not, yet your heav'nly Father feeds them.

Are you not of more value than they?


Therefore, do not be anxious, saying, "What shall we eat?

"What shall we drink, or what shall we wear?"

Look at the lilies, how they neither toil, nor spin,

Yet Solomon the king was not as glorious as them!


Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?

Look at the birds of the air.

Sowing not, reaping not, yet your heav'nly Father feeds them.

Are you not of more value than they?


Matthew chapter six, twenty-five, thirty-one.

Like some of you, I've been playing the piano since early childhood, and have added a few other instruments along the way, plus an interest in arranging and composing music.

I also happen to love the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Christian worldview that portrays The Great War in the heavens, in which we here on earth are destined to be a part.
