Author: Mrs. P. A. Hanaford Hymnal: Laudes Domini #468 (1888) Hymnal Title: Laudes Domini First Line: Cast thy bread upon the waters Lyrics: 1 Cast thy bread upon the waters,
Thinking not 'tis thrown away;
God himself saith thou shalt gather
It again some future day.
2 Cast thy bread upon the waters;
Wildly though the billows roll,
They but aid thee as thou toilest
Truth to spread from pole to pole.
3 As the seed, by billows floated,
To some distant island lone,
So to human souls benighted,
That thou flingest may be borne.
4 Cast thy bread upon the waters;
Why wilt thou still doubting stand?
Bounteous shall God send the harvest,
If thou sow'st with liberal hand. Topics: Activity; Christians Duties; Church Work of; Communion of Saints At Lord's Table Scripture: Ecclesiastes 11:1 Languages: English Tune Title: SOLNEY
