Representative Text

1 What seed are you sowing in life’s harvest-field,
While swiftly the bright moments fly?
Each seed that you sow will spring up and grow,
And the harvest will come by and by.

Refrain:
The harvest will come by and by, by and by,
The harvest will come by and by, by and by,
Each seed that you sow will spring up and grow,
And the harvest will come by and by.

2 Sow good seed at morning, at noontide and eve,
And let thy seed wisely be cast;
Then joy shall be thine—thou needst not repine,
When cometh the reaping at last! [Refrain]

3 Be watchful and earnest and pray’rfully sow,
Trust God for the sunshine and rain;
Oh sweet it will be at harvest to know,
Thy labor has not been in vain! [Refrain]
