1.  The Sower goeth forth to sow

His seed of grain so tender,

That it may rooted be, and grow,

And bring forth fruit in splendor.

By faith He sees His harvest field

Its fruitage in abundance yield.

2.  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.

3.  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.
