Charles M. Fillmore


Sowing the seed by night and by day,
Sowing the seed in many a way,
Reaping will come at some time, we know,
Harvest will spring from whatever we sow.


Be not deceived, God is not mocked.
Be not deceived, God is not mocked.
What a man sows that he also shall reap.

Sowing the seeds of fleshly delights,
Sowing the seeds of base appetites,
Reaping will come, behold the waste field;
Utter destruction is all it will yield.


Sowing the seed of spirit so pure,
Sowing the seed of righteousness sure;
Reaping will come, behold the glad store,
Blessedness now, then the life evermore.
