That the soil would love the seed

Slowly, slowly
in God’s timing
the soil prepared
for the seed of the gospel
Tending the ground
that it would be rich soil
the fruit of the work
a harvest unto God

Water with the word
the life of Christ Jesus
God’s truth in the scripture
a revelation of God’s love
Take time to prepare
to nurture the soil
each heart a vineyard
the hope from above

Seed for the soil
the grace of our Savior
the hope of eternity
in God’s message of love
Take time to prepare
to tend these gardens
a harvest for God
when we share in the work

That the soil, each heart
would have joy in the message
that the soil would love
the seed of God’s love
Share in the preparing
the tending of the soil
in God’s time planting
a harvest to unfold
