To sow seeds in other fields – v3

barred from our fields
only to sit in the pews
those that have been deemed unworthy
by their status denied
their work for God’s kingdom

sent out to other lands
to share their witness
to sow seeds in other fields
called unworthy by our law
to sow their seeds for God
