Representative Text

1 Sow thou thy seed in the morning,
And water it often with tears,
And pray that the time for the reaping
Will come in the future years;
For the gleaners wait with patience,
And from field of unfaithful sod,
Will come the sweet assurance
That the fruitage cometh from God.

Refrain:
Sow in love the precious seed,
‘Mid the scenes of peace and strife,
Scatter wide the seeds so precious,
In the morning of thy life.

2 Speak words of love to the erring,
And plead with a gentle breath,
And trust God while you are praying
To save a soul from death.
The fruit may pass unheeded,
And care not for love nor rod,
Say when thou sendest a message,
The fruitage cometh from God. [Refrain]

3 Trust then in His blest promise,
Grieve not when you see no sign
Of fruit from the fields where you labor,
Or life from gifts of thine;
No effort will be forgotten,
Though you rest beneath the sod,
And others may gather the harvest,
Yet the fruitage cometh from God. [Refrain]
