Representative Text

1 Be careful what you sow,
For seed will surely grow;
The dew will fall,
The rain will splash,
The clouds grow dark,
The sunshine flash,
And he who sows good seed today,
Shall reap good seed tomorrow;
And he who sows good seed today,
Shall reap good seed tomorrow.

Refrain:
Be careful what you sow,
For seed will surely grow,
And he who sows good seed today,
Shall reap with joy tomorrow.

2 Be careful what you sow,
For seed will surely grow;
Where it may fall,
You cannot know,
In sun or shade
‘Twill surely grow,
And he who sows good seed today,
Shall reap good seed tomorrow;
And he who sows good seed today,
Shall reap good seed tomorrow. [Refrain]

3 Be careful what you sow,
The weed you plant will grow;
The scattered seed
From thoughtless hand,
Must gathered be,
By God’s command,
And he who sows wild oats today,
Must reap the crop tomorrow;
And he who sows wild oats today,
Must reap the crop tomorrow. [Refrain]

4 Then let us sow good deeds,
And not the briars and weeds;
Then harvest time
Its joys shall bring,
And when we reap,
Our hearts shall sing,
And he who sows good seed today,
Shall reap good seed tomorrow;
And he who sows good seed today,
Shall reap good seed tomorrow. [Refrain]
