Representative Text

1. Sowing by word and deed,
Scattering precious seed,
Telling the story of His love;
Gladly the news proclaim,
Jesus has come to reign,
Wonderful Savior from above.

Refrain
Sowing in faith and prayer,
Scattering everywhere
Seeds of the truth in mercy,
Sowing for others to share;
From the wide fields of sin,
Gathering wanderers in,
Sowing the truth with song and prayer.

2. Sing of His wondrous love,
Sing of the home above,
Blending with yonder sacred throng;
Loud let our voices raise,
Beautiful songs of praise,
Sowing the Gospel in our song. [Refrain]

3. Marching we onward go,
Bravely we face the foe,
Clad in the armor of our Lord;
Ever our prayer shall be,
Sowing, O Lord, for Thee,
Guide us and teach us by Thy Word. [Refrain]
