WHAT SHALL THE HARVEST BE




Sowing the seed
by the dawn-light fair,
Sowing the seed
by the noon-day glare;
Sowing the seed
by the fading light,
Sowing the seed
in the solemn night:
Oh, what shall the harvest be?
Oh, what shall the harvest be?

Sown in the darkness
or sown in the light,
Sown in our weakness
or sown in our might,
Gathered in time or eternity,
Sure, ah, sure will the harvest be.



Sowing the seed
by the wayside high,
Sowing the seed
on the rocks to die;
Sowing the seed
where the thorns will spoil,
Sowing the seed
in the fertile soil.
Oh, what shall the harvest be?
Oh, what shall the harvest be?

Sown in the darkness
or sown in the light,
Sown in our weakness
or sown in our might,
Gathered in time or eternity,
Sure, ah, sure will the harvest be.



Sowing the seed
of a lingering pain,
Sowing the seed
of a maddened brain;
Sowing the seed
of a tarnished name,
Sowing the seed
of eternal shame.
Oh, what shall the harvest be?
Oh, what shall the harvest be?

Sown in the darkness
or sown in the light,
Sown in our weakness
or sown in our might,
Gathered in time or eternity,
Sure, ah, sure will the harvest be.



Sowing the seed
with an aching heart,
Sowing the seed
while the tear-drops start,
Sowing in hope till the reapers come
Gladly to gather the harvest home:
Oh, what shall the harvest be?
Oh, what shall the harvest be?

Sown in the darkness
or sown in the light,
Sown in our weakness
or sown in our might,
Gathered in time or eternity,
Sure, ah, sure will the harvest be.
