Representative Text

1 Satan, tares is sowing,
In the heart they’re growing
Where the golden seed of life is found;
Let them grow together,
In the sunny weather,
Till the angels glean the harvest ground.

Then the wheat they’ll gather home,
When the angel reapers come,
And the tares will be destroyed,
Oh, there’ll be an aching void
When the angel reapers hither come.

2 Satan, tares is sowing,
In our lives they’re growing
Where alone the deeds of love should be;
Savior, we would ever
Guard our lives, and never
Cherish word or tho’t untrue to thee. [Refrain]

3 With a patient yearning,
To the right e’er turning,
Lead us, blessed Savior, t’ward our home;
By the way of duty,
Holiness and beauty,
Ready for the reapers when they come. [Refrain]
