This Life Is A Garden


This life is a garden where action and deed
May spring into gladness by sowing the seed;
God give us abundantly sunshine and show’rs,
And we may have brambles, or beautiful flow’rs.

Chorus:
We’ll scatter good seed in word and in deed,
And Jesus will bless it, we know;
In mercy and love, for heaven above,
We’ll scatter good seed as we go.

The kindness to others, which all may bestow,
Will blossom for heaven from seed which we sow;
The words of salvation for lost ones will be
A crown of rejoicing for you and for me. [Chorus]

O we must be careful of seed that we sow,
Uprooting the weeds from the soil where they grow;
We’ll need to keep praying as onward we press,
And asking the Savior our efforts to bless. [Chorus]
