Sowing in the morning

1
Sowing in the morning, sowing seeds of kindness,
Sowing in the noontide and the dewy eve;
Waiting for the harvest, and the time of reaping,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.
  Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves;
Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.
2
Sowing in the sunshine, sowing in the shadows,
Fearing neither clouds nor winter’s chilling breeze;
By and by, the harvest and the labor ended,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.
3
Going forth with weeping, sowing for the Master,
Tho’, the loss sustained, our spirit often grieves;
When our weeping’s over, He will bid us welcome,
We shall come rejoicing, bringing in the sheaves.

Sheaf:

1.a bundle of grain stalks laid lengthwise and tied together after reaping.

According to the song, we will be bringing in all the souls we have helped win to Christ and laying them at His feet.

This song inspires me a great deal and it reminds me of my childhood days.

When we go to church and were taught how to sing from the hymnal.

Thank God am a member of God's family.

indeed as joy comes in the morning, sowing in the morning too is very nice with the morning dew to soften our hearts when we are dry.
