Hymn A & M 486- The sower went forth sowing




 1. The sower went forth sowing,

the seed in secret slept

through weeks of faith and patience,

till our the green blade crept;

and warmed by golden sunshine

and fed by silver rain,

at last the fields were whitened

to harvest once again.

O praise the heavenly Sower,

who gave the fruitful seed,

and watched and watered duly,

and ripened for our need.


2. Behold the heavenly Sower

goes forth with better seed,

the word of sure salvation,

with feet and hands that bleed;

here in his Church 'tis scattered,

our spirits are the soil;

then let an ample fruitage

repay his pain and toil.

O beauteous is the harvest

wherein all goodness thrives!

And this the true thanksgiving--

the first fruits of our lives.


3. Within a hallowed acre

he sows yet other grain,

when peaceful earth receiveth

the dead he died to gain;

for though the growth be hidden,

we know that they shall ripen

in sunny Paradise.

O summer land of harvest,

O fields for ever white

with souls that wear Christ's raiment,

with crowns of golden light!


4. One day the heavenly Sower

shall reap where he hath sown,

and come again rejoicing,

and with him bring his own;

and then the fan of judgment

shall winnow from his floor

the chaff into the furnace

that flameth evermore.

O holy, awful Reaper,

have mercy in the day

thou puttest in thy sickle,

and cast us not away.
