1.  Almighty God, Thy word is cast

Like seed into the ground;

O may it grow in humble hearts,

And righteous fruits abound.

2.  Let not the foe of Christ and man

This holy seed remove,

But give it root in praying souls

To bring forth fruits of love.

3.  Let not the world’s deceitful cares

The rising plant destory,

But may it, in converted minds,

Produce the fruits of joy.

4.  Let not They word, so kindly sent

To raise us to Thy throne,

Return to Thee, and sadly tell

That we reject Thy Son.
