1. If I planted a garden,
If I carefully sowed,
If I nourished each tiny seed,
If I tended it well,
And helped it to grow,
What a beautiful harvest I’d reap.
2. In my life, like a garden,
There are seeds to be sown.
I must choose with the greatest care,
Planting only what’s good
So I can be sure
Only beautiful things will grow there.
3. I am planting my garden
Ev’ry day of my life,
And the harvest is mine to keep.
If I plant seeds of faith,
Of honor and truth,
What a beautiful harvest I’ll reap.
