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]
