Representative Text

1 In the furrows of thy life,
Scatter seed!
Small may be the spirit field,
But a goodly crop 'twill yield;
Sow the kindly word and deed
Scatter, scatter goodly seed!

Chorus:
Open, then, thy golden store,
Stretch the furrows more and more,
God will give thee all thy need
Scatter, scatter goodly seed!

2 Sun and shower aid thee now,
Scatter seed!
Who can tell where grain may grow?
Winds are blowing to and fro,
Daily good thy simple creed.
Scatter, scatter goodly seed! [Chorus]

3 Though thy work should seem to fail,
Scatter seed!
Some may fall on stony ground:
Flower and blade are often found
In the clefts we little heed.
Scatter, scatter goodly seed! [Chorus]

4 Springtime always dawns for thee!
Scatter seed!
Open, then, thy golden store,
Stretch thy furrows more and more;
God will give thee all thy need.
Scatter, scatter, goodly seed! [Chorus]
