Cast me as seed – v2

Cast me as a net,
to reap, to gather,
cast me as seed, scatter me,
share me with the world
your Spirit within

Fill me with Your message
Your teachings, oh God,
make room for Your Spirit
empty me of everything
but fill me with love

Let me be Your servant
Your vessel, to be filled
grounded in the good soil
let me be empty
let me be full

Sow me as seeds
cast me as a net
in the furrowed ground
let me be raised for Thee
let me be sown

Cast me as a net
cast me as seed
onto troubled waters
let me be sent out, to gather in
a harvest for the Lord

Let me be Your message
Your hands and Your feet
given to the world
let me shine Your Light
bearing Your holy Word
