Full Text

1 Ev’ry one is sowing both by word and deed,
All mankind are growing either wheat or weed;
Thoughtless ones are throwing any kind of seed,
Sowing, sowing, sowing.

Surely as the sowing shall the harvest be!
See what you are throwing over hill and lea;
Words and deeds are growing for eternity,
Growing, growing, growing.

2 Serious ones are seeking seed already sown,
Many eyes are weeping, now the crop is grown;
Think upon the reaping–each one reaps his own,
Reaping, reaping, reaping. [Refrain]

3 Ye that would be bringing sheaves of golden grain,
Mind what you are flinging both from hand and brain;
Then with happy singing you shall glean great gain,
Gleaning, gleaning, gleaning. [Refrain]
