Sent to Sow

"The people blessed all the men that willingly offered themselves" (Nehemiah 11:2 ).  "This is the generation of them that seek… the King of glory" (Psalm 24:6-10).  "The honor of kings is to search out a matter… A faithful messenger… refresheth the soul… as cold waters to a thirsty soul; so is good news from a far country" (Proverbs 25:13,25).  "Behold, a sower went forth to sow… He that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit" (Matthew 13:3,23). 

We thank the Lord for those He sent,
Who gave themselves in consecration
As messengers with this intent: 
To sow the Gospel of salvation. 

Our generation is the ground
That needs the Gospel seed we scatter,
So fruit in souls may thus abound
Who search for truth in things that matter.   

The Gospel message quenches thirst
In precious souls that would have perished,
For on the cross our Lord was cursed
To bear the sin of those He cherished.

O Lord, we have been sent to sow
Your Gospel that is absolute.
As You prepare the hearts, we go
And speak to those who may bear fruit.
