Charles M. Fillmore (1860–1952)


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.


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.


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.
