1 When seed falls on good soil,
It's born through quiet toil,
Where soil receives, the earth conceives
The blade, the stem, the fruit, the leaves.
Good soil, O mother earth,
The womb where seed takes birth.

2 God's Word in Christ is seed,
Good soil its urgent need;
And it would work in humankind
The fertile soil in heart and mind.
Good soil, a human field,
A hundredfold to yield.

3 Lord, plow the trodden way,
And clear the stone away;
Tear our the weed and sow the seed.
Prepare our hearts your Word to heed
That we good soil may be.
Begin, O Lord, with me!
