Text Information:

This hymn draws on very old Christian materials, the earliest being Jesus’ parables about sowers and seed (Matthew 13/Mark 4/Luke 8). Stanza one paraphrases 1 Corinthians 10:16, and stanza three uses imagery from the Didache, a major Christian document from the early 2nd century.
