Title: Consider the lilies
Composer: Maggie Furtak
First published: 2015
Description: Double choir SATB a cappella, but not unduly difficult. Ranges are comfortable throughout for all voice parts, and all lines are very singable. Much dynamic nuance is achieved through the entrance and exit of different voice parts, so I've kept dynamic markings to a minimum. These markings are suggestions only. Do what is appropriate for the voices and acoustical space you have. The composer will not come bop you on the head for changing a crescendo. Enjoy, and please let me know if anything could have been marked more clearly, or felt needlessly difficult.

Original text and translations
Consider the lilies of the field: how they grow.
They toil not, neither do they spin.
Consider the ravens.
No barns have they, for they neither sow nor reap.
Consider how they live.
Storehouses nor barns, no, neither have they.
God feedeth them.
Consider, and fear not little flock.
