Representative Text

1 The Master is sowing the good seed of truth,
With hands that are patient and kind;
Alike on the fertile and bleak place it falls,
What soil in your heart will it find?

Refrain:
Let the good seed take root in your heart, my brother,
And bring forth a glorious yield;
If nourished in faith will a fruitage divine
In the harvest of life be revealed.

2 Are sinful desires growing rank in your heart,
As baneful weeds cumber the ground?
Does love of the world, with its folly and pride,
Within your heart’s garden abound? [Refrain]

3 O let the good seed in the sunshine of love,
And watered by heavenly dew,
Bring forth in your life the rich fruitage of grace,
That Jesus with gladness can view. [Refrain]
