With hands firmly on the plow
He steadfastly walks the fields in faith,
Eyes never look back as he works,
Thoughts are fixed on the Lord of Harvest
Eyes always look to Him!
As learned clearly over the years
With discipline deeply engraved on the heart
A mind develops most sensitive to Messiah the King
Holy Words of Scripture flow constantly within
As a pure clean stream daily revives
Thoughts in meditation as a sword thrust out
To chase off what does not belong
And what tries to deceitfully trickle in
Or even force an unclean moment of worldly distraction;
A clear mind and self-control rule in strength renewed
Even as many prayers are spoken for others
Godly love compels watering seeds
And planting many others in good soil
While he watches in gladness as the Lord brings forth growth!
Satisfaction found in soul and spirit rest
Peace in confidence always at hand
Harvest is celebrated by a servant of God
Another human vessel who works the soil tirelessly,
Honor for his Lord Messiah the greatest desire!
