1 Sowing in sadness through long, weary years
Scattering seed with the fast falling tears;
O how we long for the glad harvest day,
When sheaves are gathered, and tears wiped away!
Sowing in tears through long, weary years;
Wait, only wait, till the harvest appears.
2 Sowing good seed as in sadness we go;
Sure is the promise, to reap what we sow;
Tears only water the grain that we cast,
God will bestow us the increase at last. [Chorus]
3 Sow to the Spirit, and life we shall reap,
Life everlasting, where none ever weep;
Heaven will yield us a harvest of peace,
When all the labors of summer shall cease. [Chorus]
