899. What Are You Sowing, Sinner?

1 What are you sowing, sinner,
Carelessly, heedlessly?
Scattering seeds of folly?
Sure will the reaping be.

Refrain:
Sowing and reaping, sowing and reaping,
Sowing and reaping, sad ’twill be;
Sowing and reaping, sowing and reaping,
Gath’ring the tares for eternity.

2 Sowing the seeds of malice,
Hatred, and bitterness,
Reaping with tears your harvest—
Sorrow and wretchedness. [Refrain]

3 Sowing of pride and passion,
Pleasure and revelry,
Reaping of wrath and torment
Through all eternity. [Refrain]

4 Sowing of sin, remember,
This shall your harvest be—
Banished from God and heaven,
Lost through eternity. [Refrain]
