Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

899. What Are You Sowing, Sinner?

1 What are you sowing, sinner,
Carelessly, heedlessly?
Scattering seeds of folly?
Sure will the reaping be.

Refrain:
Sowing and reaping, sowing and reaping,
Sowing and reaping, sad ’twill be;
Sowing and reaping, sowing and reaping,
Gath’ring the tares for eternity.

2 Sowing the seeds of malice,
Hatred, and bitterness,
Reaping with tears your harvest—
Sorrow and wretchedness. [Refrain]

3 Sowing of pride and passion,
Pleasure and revelry,
Reaping of wrath and torment
Through all eternity. [Refrain]

4 Sowing of sin, remember,
This shall your harvest be—
Banished from God and heaven,
Lost through eternity. [Refrain]
