1 Satan the tares is sowing,
So earnestly sowing, sowing,
And with the wheat they’re growing,
Together growing here.

And the angels will gather,
By and by, by and by,
The tares for the burning and the wheat for the sky;
The angels will gather,
By and by, by and by,
The tares for the burning and the wheat for the sky.

2 God for the wheat is caring,
So tenderly caring, caring,
And while the tares he’s sparing
The harvest draweth near. [Refrain]

3 Yes, he the what is keeping,
So lovingly keeping, keeping,
Safe for the time of reaping,
For garners guilt above. [Refrain]

4 When he the wheat doth sever,
Eternally sever, sever,
May we be his forever,
To sing his grace and love. [Refrain]
