Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 In the furrows of thy life,
Scatter seed,
In the midst of toil and strife,
Scatter seed!
Small may be thy spirit field,
But a goodly crop ‘twill yield,
Sow the kindly word and deed,
Scatter seed.

Refrain:
Scatter seed, scatter seed,
In the burrows of thy life,
Scatter seed!
Small may be thy spirit field,
But a goodly crop ‘twill yield,
Sow the kindly word and deed,
Scatter seed.

2 Sun and showers aid thee now,
Scatter seed,
With thy hand upon the plow,
Scatter seed!
Who can tell where grain may grow!
Winds are blowing to and fro;
Daily good thy simple creed,
Scatter seed. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ thy work should seem to fail,
Scatter seed,
Honest purpose will avail,
Scatter seed!
Some may fall on stony ground;
Fruit and flow’rs are often found
In the clefts we little heed,
Scatter seed. [Refrain]
