“The Most Precious Seed,” Ensign, Sept. 1999, 58

The Most Precious Seed

The abyss of hate

Is great,

Where envy, pride, and greed

Choke the earth as tangled weeds.

But charity,

Though a rarity,

Is most precious of all seeds.

Sown carefully, she ever grows

To fill our deepest needs;

Her power’s limit no one knows—

Save Him whose voice she heeds.
