John Cawood, 1815
Almighty God, Thy Word is cast|
Like seed into the ground;
Now let the dew of heaven descend
And righteous fruits abound.
2. Let not the foe of Christ and man
3. Let not the world's deceitful cares|
The rising plant destroy,
But let it yield a hundredfold
The fruits of peace and joy.
4. Oft as the precious seed is sown,
5. Nor let Thy Word, so kindly sent|
To raise us to Thy throne,
Return to Thee and sadly tell
That we reject Thy Son.
