Precious Seed for Perishing Souls

"When the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon, she came… and she said… I believed not their words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it" (2 Chronicles 9:1-6).  "He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him" (Psalm 126:6).  "Doth not wisdom cry?  And understanding put forth her voice?" (Proverbs 8:1).  "Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you" (1 Peter 3:15). 

The queen of Sheba heard the fame
Of Solomon, whom God made wise,
And yet was doubtful till she came
And verified it with her eyes. 

The Gospel is the precious seed
Of greater truth than all that seen
And verified as true indeed
By Sheba's wise and searching queen. 

The Gospel of our precious Savior
Is true without exaggeration! 
Almighty God has shown His favor
Through Christ who purchased our salvation!

May precious seed, Lord, sown in season
In souls yet perishing with doubt,  
Bear fruit through honesty and reason
In humble hearts who search You out.
