about

Written by Ellie Holcomb

I wrote this song while I was pregnant with my little girl. I could not stop worrying about her. I remember reading this passage in Matthew 6 during that particular season and being struck that God tells us NOT to worry. It caught my attention because I couldn't seem to stop! Something amazing happened as I began to memorize this passage from Matthew & write this song. I began believing that I didn't have to worry because God is a good Father who provides well for His children. I would start to worry and then we'd drive past a beautiful field of wild flowers or a flock of birds, and I'd remember! "If God takes care of those beautiful flowers and those flighty birds, how much more will He take care of me?" I started listening to Creation's song, and it changed my heart from one full of worry to a heart full of hope and trust in a faithful Provider. I still love singing this song because it helps me remember that worrying can't add a single hour to my life, but that trusting God can bring beautiful and wonderful peace even in the midst of uncertainty.

lyrics

See the birds who are singing in the spring air?
They’re given everything they need
They don’t worry where their next meal will come from
They don’t worry ‘bout a thing

Chorus
So just, look around you and try to listen to
The song creation sings
And don’t you worry cause you’re in the hands
Of the God who made everything

See the flowers in their colorful beauty
They’re dressed better than a king
They don’t worry about what they should wear, no
They don’t worry ‘bout a thing

Chorus

Because you’re not a bird and you’re not a flower
You don’t have petals or wings
But there is good news, you’re worth so much more
To the God who made everything.

So when you worry ‘bout today or tomorrow
And the storms that they might bring
Try to remember that you’re in the hands
Of the God who made everything

Chorus

[spoken]: Now just remember - you’re not a bird and you’re not a flower. You don’t have petals or wings. But there is good news, ‘cause you’re worth so much more to the God who made everything.
