Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Text Information:

All three synoptic gospels record both the telling and the explanation of Jesus’ parable of the Sower (Matthew 13:3–8, 18–23/Mark 4:3–8, 14–20/Luke 8:5–8, 11–15). Because the seed equals “the word,” Jesus (as the Word made flesh) becomes the Seed in this expansion of the parable.
