Daniel B. Towner


Be not deceived; each soul shall reap
Its harvest soon or late;
Sow now thy seed, the field is wide;
The world is thine estate.


Be not deceived, be not deceived,
God is not mocked;
For whatsoever a man soweth,
Whatsoever a man soweth,
That shall he also reap,
That shall he also reap.

Sow evil deeds with careless hand
And one sad day behold
Thy garner filled with blighted hopes,
And woes a hundred fold.


Sow seeds of faith and hope and love,
Perchance with falling tears,
A harvest home of peace and joy
Will crown the work of years.


God’s law will stand forevermore,
The law His love made known—
From out the harvest field of life
We reap as we have sown.
