Lyrics

You Reap What You Sow

I once asked the farmer as he toiled in the row
To tell me his secret for making things grow
I’ll always remember that look in his eye
As he studied God’s acre and gave his reply

CHORUS

You reap what you sow, so you better plan wisely
That the garden may yield you a bounty of good
You get what you give, so give completely
And all your deeds will return as they should

I once asked the baker as he leavened his bread
Why he went to such measure to make it the best
And without hesitation, without missing a beat
He put that bread in the oven, and said these words to me

CHORUS

So I tended my garden, and planted each seed
I nurtured each flower, and I pulled out the weeds
I watched as they blossomed, and saw it so clear
The truth of those words that still ring in my ear

CHORUS

You reap what you sow, so you better plan wisely
That the harvest may yield you a bounty of good
You get what you give, so give completely
And all your deeds will return as they should
All your deeds will return as they should

You reap what you sow, so you better plan wisely…
