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?”
