The word of God is like a seed
I plant within my heart.
It will grow and fill my soul
If I will do my part.
I’ll water it with scriptures
And pull the weeds of sin.
I’ll let the sun of service shine,
The breath of prayer come in.
I’ll soon begin to see it grow
And I’ll taste the fruit I sow.
And like the prophets, new and old,
I, too, will say “I know!”
