Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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

Representative Text

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]
