TRUSTFUL ACTIVITY




Sow in the morn thy seed,
At eve hold not thy hand;
To doubt and fear give thou no heed,
Broadcast it o’er the land.


Beside all waters sow,
The highway furrows stock,
Drop it where thorns and thistles grow,
Scatter it on the rock.


The good, the fruitful ground
Expect not, here nor there;
O’er hill and dale, by plots ‘tis found:
Go forth, then everywhere.


And duly shall appear,
In verdure, beauty, strength,
The tender blade, the stalk, the ear,
And the full corn at length.


Thou knowest not which may thrive,
The late or early sown;
God keeps His precious seed alive,
When and wherever thrown.


Thou canst not toil in vain;
Cold, heat, and moist, and dry,
Shall foster and mature the grain
For garners in the sky.


Thence, when the glorious end,
The day of God is come,
The angels reapers shall descend,
And heaven cry, “Harvest Home.”


---Alternative verses---


Beside all waters sow,
The highway furrows stock,
Drop it where thorns and thistles grow,
Drop it upon the rock!


Thou knowest not which may thrive,
The late or early sown;
Grace keeps the chosen germ alive,
When and wherever strown.


And duly shall appear,
In verdure, beauty, strength,
The tender blade, the stalk, the ear,
And the full comest length.


Hence, when the glorious end,
The day of God, is come,
The angel-reapers shall descend,
And heaven cry, Harvest-home!


Then when the glorious end,
The day of God shall come,
The angels reapers shall descend,
And heaven's cry, harvest-home.


Then, when the final end,
The day of God is come,
The angel reapers shall descend,
And heaven sing, "Harvest home!"


Thence, when the glorious end,
The day of God, shall come,
The angel reapers shall descend,
And bear the harvest home.


Then duly shall appear,
In verdure, beauty, strength,
The tender blade, the stalk, the ear,
And the full corn at length.
