Representative Text

1. He that goeth forth and weepeth,
Bearing precious seed,
Let him know that as he soweth
To the sinner's need,
So he'll reap.

Chorus:
Sowing now, sowing now,
But reaping by and by;
Weeping now, weeping now,
Rejoicing by and by.

2. He that goeth forth and weepeth,
Trusting in the Lord,
Let him know that all he soweth
Of the precious word,
That he'll reap. [Chorus]

3. He that goeth forth and weepeth,
All aglow with love,
Often times, just while he soweth,
Hearts begin to move;
So he'll reap. [Chorus]

4. He that goeth forth and weepeth,
Christ he never leaves,
Doubtless shall return rejoicing!
Bringing home his sheaves,
Thus, he'll reap. [Chorus]
