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.

Refrain:
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]
