Sowing and reaping for Jesus our king,
Beautiful story to tell!
Spreading His Gospel in truth as we sing,
Beautiful story to tell.

Refrain

Sowing the seed of the kingdom,
Sing it wherever you go;
Reapers shall gather together,
Whatsoever they sow.

Sowing the words of His wonderful love,
Beautiful story to tell!
Pointing the erring to Heaven above,
Beautiful story to tell.

Refrain

Sowing for Jesus, yes, sowing today,
Beautiful story to tell!
Sowing for Jesus, for He is the way,
Beautiful story to tell.

Refrain

Sowing, still sowing for Jesus we send,
Beautiful story to tell!
Seed that we’ll harvest when cometh the end,
Beautiful story to tell.
