1 See, the morn is brighting
In the eastern sky;
Up! for work make ready,
Lie not idly by;
Hasten to the grain fields
With your precious seed;
Many willing workmen
Yet the Lord will need.

Refrain:
’Tis the time for sowing
Seeds of precious worth,
Scatter them like sunshine,
Over all the earth.
’Tis the time for sowing
Seeds of precious worth,
Scatter them like sunshine,
Over all the earth.

2 Sow the seeds of kindness
In your neighbor’s heart,
You will soon with gladness
See the plantlets start;
If the soil is stony,
Never fear to sow;
Some rift may be open
Where the stalk may grow. [Refrain]

3 Sow along the highway,
Strangers may be there;
You may make them better
By the gift of pray’r;
Sow beneath the mountain,
While your strength is giv’n;
Sow till life is ended,
You will reap in heav’n. [Refrain]
