                              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.
