1 Are you sowing, daily sowing,
All along life’s changeful way?
Precious seeds beside all waters,
Do you scatter day by day?

Are you sowing for the Master?
You shall reap in joy or tears,
Whatsoever you are sowing,
When the harvest-time appears.

2 Are you sowing seeds of kindness,
With a lavish, loving hand?
Desert wastes it soon with brighten
With a harvest rich and grand. [Chorus]

3 Are you sowing, daily trusting
All the increase unto God?
He will bless you if you scatter
Seeds of love and truth abroad. [Chorus]
