Plant a Garden

    “Plant a Garden,” Friend, Mar. 1997, 5

    Plant a Garden

    1. If I planted a garden,

    If I carefully sowed,

    If I nourished each tiny seed,

    If I tended it well,

    And helped it to grow,

    What a beautiful harvest I’d reap.

    2. In my life, like a garden,

    There are seeds to be sown.

    I must choose with the greatest care,

    Planting only what’s good

    So I can be sure

    Only beautiful things will grow there.

    3. I am planting my garden

    Ev’ry day of my life,

    And the harvest is mine to keep.

    If I plant seeds of faith,

    Of honor and truth,

    What a beautiful harvest I’ll reap.
