Seeds now we are sowing, and fruit they must bear

Representative Text

SEEDS now we are sowing, and fruit they must bear,
For blessing or cursing, for joy or despair;
Though we may forget them, the things of the past
Will work out God’s sentence upon us at last.

2 Seeds now we are sowing, each day that we live,
That must to our future its character give;
When God sends his reapers, our gladness or woe
Will spring from the nature of seeds we now sow.

3 O sinner, remember you’re sowing such seed,
By wishing and thinking, by word and by deed,
As will in the future bear evil or good,
Make tares or ripe wheat for the garner of God.
