Full Text

1 Sowing the seed when the day has begun,
Sowing the seed in the noonday sun;
Sowing the seed till the day is all done,
What will the harvest be?

Chorus:
Sowing in time for eternity,
Sowing in time for eternity,
What will the harvest be? what will it be?
What will the harvest be?

2 Sowing the seed by the wayside so dry,
Sowing the seed where the hard rocks lie,
Sowing the seed where the thorns grow so high,
What will the harvest be? [Chorus]

3 Sowing the seed of the heavenly grain,
Sowing the seed in sorrow and pain;
What at the judgment will be the gain?
What will the harvest be? [Chorus]

4 Sowing the good seed upon the good ground,
Sowing where tears of contrition are found;
Sowing where faith, hope and love will abound,
Souls will the harvest be. [Chorus]
