1 In the freshness of the morning,
Is the time to sow good seed,
By example, friendly warning,
You may some ne Christward lead.

Sow the gospel seed today,
Sow the gospel seed today.
In the Home, workshop or meeting,
Sow the Gospel seed today.

2 While your pulses strong are beating,
While you feel health’s glow and light,
In the home, workshop or meeting,
Active be for what is right. [Refrain]

3 Work for Christ today in earnest,
Now is your best time to start;
Where you may stay or may journey,
Drop a seed in some one’s heart. [Refrain]

4 Go and gather souls for Jesus,
While thy strength and breath remain;
Souls around you still are dying,
In their guilt and in their shame. [Refrain]

5 Work for Jesus, spread His teaching,
Show the world His bleeding side;
That the last ones may be gathered,
And the precious blood applied. [Refrain]
