O Scatter Seeds Of Loving Deeds

Sprinkle the seeds of love
wherever you go. . .
That they may blossom to beauty,
long after you have gone your way.
- Joan Walsh Anglund -


O scatter seeds of loving deeds, along the fertile field,
For grain will grow from what you sow, and fruitful harvest yield.

Tho' sown in tears through weary years, the seed will surely live;
Tho' great the cost, it is not lost, for God will fruitage give.

The harvest home of God will come, and after toil and care,
With joy untold, your sheaves of gold will all be garnered there.

Chorus
Then day by day along the way,
the seeds of promise cast,
the ripened grain from hill and plain,
be gathered home at last.
- Jessie H. Brown -


You take care of the sowing,
God will take care of the growing.
- Unknown -

When you plant a seed of love
it is you that blossoms.
- Unknown -

But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly;
and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
- 2 Corinthians 9:6 -


Have a blessed Lord's Day, precious friends!

Love indeed my friend, is the only seed that comes to fruition in the harshness of winter and the inevitable season of death. LOVE LIVES FOREVER BECAUSE HE IS LOVE!

Happy Sunday! Anita

This is a wonderful song that I'm not sure I ever heard before. Love the words.
Hope you're having a wonderful Lord's Day, too.

Oh, Stephanie, what a beautiful hymn! I too have never heard it before, but I love the words and was reading the music and singing some of the notes. Thank you for sharing this wonderful old hymn. It's precious words are such a great reminder that we are to serve and sow the seeds...and our precious Father will care for growth and reaping. A truly wonderful post today, precious friend! Blessed Lord's day to you! Warm hugs!

Such a beautiful post with such lovely words to the song. I have never heard it, but the message is so true. We reap what we sow. Psalm 126:6 says, He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. God bless you.

Alex said...

My little garland is on its way...will be with you end of this week or so.

This was lovely! Thank you.

Wanda said...

Stephanie ~ there is just something "righteous" about your post...so pure, so holy, so good. That in part because the author of this post is a woman of virtue and love. That's you my dear.


With that said...I did have to smile, as your "seeds" look just like my dearest's pain pills for his back.

Loving hugs my sweet Stephanie.

Sonia said...

Oh Stephanie, I sure enjoyed this lovely post.
Such truth in these words, I love it!
"when you plant a seed of love, it is you that blossoms" how very true is that. There is joy, pure joy in loving on others.
This was a challenge Stephanie, thank you.

Love you, Mom

wonderful song and that last verse is all so true!! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start!!

Mindy Whipple said...

I have never read or sung this hymn before Stephanie but I love it. Starting my blog (and in my first post) much of what God was speaking to me was about scattering seed - thus the dandelion diary. Love your Sunday posts : )

M. E. Stephens said...

Thank you for sharing these sweet thoughts. It was very timely for me. We've been struggling with a situation where we can't really make much of a difference in the short term, but this is an important reminder that we may sow things now that may bear fruit later. It is sometimes hard to keep sowing seeds of righteousness and love, but in the end it will be worth it. And, God has promised that His word will not return unto Him void!

Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
