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

Representative Text

1 Are you sowing the seeds of mercy,
Fellow pilgrim! day by day?
Are you helping to point the sinner
To the true and only way?
Are you sowing beside all waters?
What are you sowing, sowing today?
Deeds of kindness, a warm heart proving!
What are you sowing, sowing today?

2 Refrain
Are you sowing the seeds of mercy,
Fellow pilgrim! day by day?
Are you helping to point the sinner
To the true and only way?

3 Are you sowing in life’s bright morning
Seeds you e’er would wish to reap?
Trusting unto the Lord till evening
All this precious seed to keep?
Haste! the field even now is ready;
What are you sowing, sowing today?
Soon the time will be gone for ever;
What are you sowing, sowing today?

4 Are you sowing the seeds of kindness,
Bringing forth the golden grain?
Are you telling in words so tender
Of the Lamb for sinners slain?
Soon the harvest will all be gathers;
What are you sowing, sowing today?
Hear the voice of the Master saying,
“What are you sowing, sowing today?”
