383. Almighty God, Your Word is Cast

1 Almighty God, your word is cast
like seed into the ground;
now let the dew of heav'n descend,
and righteous fruits abound.

2 Let not the foe of Christ and man
this holy seed remove,
but give it root in ev'ry heart
to bring forth fruits of love.

3 Let not the world's deceitful cares
the rising plant destroy,
but let it yield a hundredfold
the fruits of peace and joy.

4 Oft as the precious seed is sown,
your quick'ning grace bestow,
that all those souls the truth receive
its saving pow'r may know.
