1 In the furrows of thy life,
Scatter seed!
Small may be the spirit field,
But a goodly crop 'twill yield;
Sow the kindly word and deed
Scatter, scatter goodly seed!

Open, then, thy golden store,
Stretch the furrows more and more,
God will give thee all thy need
Scatter, scatter goodly seed!

2 Sun and shower aid thee now,
Scatter seed!
Who can tell where grain may grow?
Winds are blowing to and fro,
Daily good thy simple creed.
Scatter, scatter goodly seed! [Chorus]

3 Though thy work should seem to fail,
Scatter seed!
Some may fall on stony ground:
Flower and blade are often found
In the clefts we little heed.
Scatter, scatter goodly seed! [Chorus]

4 Springtime always dawns for thee!
Scatter seed!
Open, then, thy golden store,
Stretch thy furrows more and more;
God will give thee all thy need.
Scatter, scatter, goodly seed! [Chorus]
