"Almighty God, Thy Word is Cast" by John Cawood, 1775-1852 Text From: THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1941) 1. Almighty God, Thy Word is cast Like seed into the ground; Now let the dew of heaven descend And righteous fruits abound. 2. Let not the foe of Christ and man This holy seed remove. But give it root in every heart To bring forth fruits of love. 3. Let not the world's deceitful cares The rising plant destroy, But let it yield a hundredfold The fruits of peace and joy. 4. Oft as the precious seed is sown, Thy quickening grace bestow That all whose souls the truth receive Its saving power may know.This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Marilyn F.
