1 As pilgrims and strangers we journey through life:
Through sunshine and shadow, through calm and through strife;
Each day we are scattering seed as we go,
Some day ’twill be harvest—“we reap what we sow.”

2 Though weary and worn, and alone in your way,
And stormclouds are gath’ring, and dark is your day,
Weep not, toiling one, neither faint as you go;
The harvest is nearing—“we reap what we sow.”

3 Though life may appear as a cold, barren waste,
And comes no return of the bread you have cast,
Continue to do loving deeds as you go;
The harvest is nearing—“we reap what we sow.”

4 We’ll reap what we sow when the harvest is come,
Some day we shall garner the deeds we have done;
Then heed not the storm, nor the cold winds that blow,
Toil on till the harvest—“we reap what we sow.”
