1 Scatter seeds where’er you go,
They will grow while you’re sleeping,
Seeds of love and kindness sow
For your future reaping.

Sow them over each hill and plain,
Leave them all in God’s keeping,
Pearls of joy like the golden grain
You will soon be reaping.

2 They may fall on sterile soil,
Yet the dew or the shower
Soon will reach them and they’ll grow
To a fragrant flower. [Refrain]

3 Loving words or thoughtful deeds
Bring a harvest of gladness;
Sow among the thorns of sin;
Sow them where there’s sadness. [Refrain]

4 Daily as you pass along,
Tell the beautiful story,
One kind word or joyful song
Spreads to fields of glory. [Refrain]
