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

Gathering seed

Representative Text

1 Out in the highways, wherever you go,
Seed we must gather, and seed we must sow;
Even the tiniest seed has a power,
Be it of thistle or be it of flower.

God speed the little seed that on its mission goes,
Making this wilderness blossom as the rose.

2 Here, where it seems but a lone desert place,
Wanting in beauty and wanting in grace,
Some gentle creature in tenderness goes,
Plucking the nettle and planting the rose. [Refrain]

3 Gathering seed we must scatter as well;
God will watch over the place where it fell;
Only the gain of the harvest is ours;
Shall we plant nettles or shall we plant flowers? [Refrain]

4 That which we gather is that which we sow;
Seed-time and harvest alternately flow;
When we have finished with time't will be known
How we have gathered and how we have sown. [Refrain]
