“Plant a Garden,” Friend, Mar. 1997, 5Plant a GardenWords and music by Sally DeFord1. 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 goodSo I can be sureOnly beautiful things will grow there.3. I am planting my gardenEv’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.Copyright © 1997 by Sally DeFord.
