9153. The Tares

1 Satan the tares is sowing;
So earnestly sowing, sowing,
And with the wheat they’re growing,
Together growing here.

Refrain:
And the angels will gather,
By and by, by and by,
The wheat for the garner
Of the Master on high;
The angels will gather,
By and by, by and by,
The wheat for the garner
Of the Master on high;

2 God for the wheat is caring,
So tenderly caring, caring,
And while the tares He’s sparing,
The harvest draweth near. [Refrain]

3 Yes, He the wheat is keeping,
So lovingly keeping, keeping,
Safe for the time of reaping,
For garners built above. [Refrain]

4 When He the wheat doth sever,
Eternally sever, sever,
May we be His forever,
To sing His grace and love. [Refrain]
