Seek Ye First the Kingdom is Track #9 on the Faithful Heart album “Songs from the Red Letters” which came out in the early 90s. It is the second song from that album that is featured on this channel. The first was “I am the Good Shepherd” which has wonderfully, had more views than I imagined. Seek Ye First features Rita Baloche on vocals.

I was on a roll doing a series of much-loved traditional hymns but have taken a break from that for a few songs. This song in particular, is special because it just beautifully sums up what it is we need to do to get through these tough and unpredictable times. It’s not easy to walk by faith, ignoring the flood of visual input but we have to learn to quietly, and faithfully, take God at His promise. Dedicated to Esther, a young mum of two (soon to be three) who now has the additional challenge of planning a move. Life is tough, but God is faithful!

Seek ye first the kingdom
And His righteousness
Take no thought for tomorrow
Put your mind at rest

Look at the birds,
As they fly so high and free
Not a single sparrow
Falls that He doesn’t see
How much more does the Father care for you
And He knows each thing
That you’re going through (so…)

By the hand of the Lord
All creation will be fed
And you need to look to Him
For your daily bread
You must become like little children
And you’ll see
That the Father will provide
For your every need (so…)

No need to toil and spin
No use in worrying
Don’t let life trouble you
Only one thing to do
