Sowing the seed by night and by day,
Sowing the seed in many a way,
Reaping will come at some time, we know,
Harvest will spring from whatever we sow.

Refrain

Be not deceived, God is not mocked.
Be not deceived, God is not mocked.
What a man sows that he also shall reap.

Sowing the seeds of fleshly delights,
Sowing the seeds of base appetites,
Reaping will come, behold the waste field;
Utter destruction is all it will yield.

Refrain

Sowing the seed of spirit so pure,
Sowing the seed of righteousness sure;
Reaping will come, behold the glad store,
Blessedness now, then the life evermore.

Refrain
