The Sower Goes Forth To Sow

The sower goeth forth to sow
His seed of grain so tender,
That it may rooted by and grow,
And bring forth fruit in splendor.
By faith He sees His harvest field
Its fruitage in abundance yield.

Thou art the Sower, dearest Lord,
The world Thy field so spacious,
The seed Thou sowest is the Word
Sown by thy hand so gracious,
From heaven above, on earth below,
That it may blossom, thrive, and grow.

Let us not merely hearers be,
But doers, blessed Saviour,
Who bring forth fruit abundantly;
Grant us Thy Spirit’s favor
To treasure in believing hearts
The precious truth Thy Word imparts.
