Good Seed

The seed of God’s truth
falls into good ground,
is watered by thought:
fruit soon will abound.

Grows up to the light then
that triggers growth strong
well rooted, new life, joy
bursts forth into song!

A plant with good fruit,
refreshing and calm,
with shelter for others,
and comforting balm –

God’s kingdom’s still growing
throughout all the earth,
unnoticed, but lasting:
it’s branches spread forth.
