1 O thou, at whose divine command,
Good seed is sown in every land,
Thy Holy Spirit now impart,
And for thy word prepare each heart.
Prepare, prepare each heart, O blessed Lord,
To hear and heed the lessons this day given
From thy most holy word.
2 Not ‘mid the thorns of worldly thought,
Nor soon by passing plunderers caught,
Nor lacking depth the root to fee,
May we receive thy Spirit’s seed. [Refrain]
3 Oh, may it, where thy sowers toil,
Fall in a good and honest soil;
And springing up from firmest root,
Through patience bear abundant fruit. [Refrain]
