Representative Text

1 Where art thou sowing today for Jesus,
Scattering seed for his kingdom fair,
Earnestly, tell me my brother,
Where do they fall?, hast thou looked with care?

Refrain:
Where are thou sowing today for Jesus,
Scattering seeds for his kingdom fair,
Earnestly, truly, but where are they falling?
Sower for Christ, hast thou looked with care?

2 Scattered in thickets of thorn and brier,
Scorched on the rocks ‘neath the summer sky,
Lost by the wayside, but surely, my brother,
Some of thy seed in good ground must lie? [Refrain]

3 Surely there’s some that the earth will quicken,
Some that will spring into new life sweet,
Yielding thy soul a rich, bountiful harvest,
Trophies to lay at thy Master’s feet? [Refrain]
