From The First Turn of The Soil
Raising in partnership a garden of life....
You think you're growing vegetables....
Gardening has its merits
Getting down and dirty does too.
You think you’re growing vegetables
But God is growing you.
He’s teaching you more patience,
That work has its reward
That He will be your partner
If you but say the word.
He’s letting you share in creation
With light He can supply.
It just takes perspiration,
And skills you can apply.
The harvest may be slow
A work of many days,
But all throughout the process,
He’s teaching you His ways.
Good seed well planted, with tender, loving care,
Will blossom and attract the bees,
While you and He are partners,
There down upon your knees.
