The Lord gave us a parable to show
us all the way
His meaning was so terrible; why doesnt it hold sway?
The truth is there; its plain to see; but we refuse to
the fiery facts of our Lords plea to those that he holds
Hes sown the earth with gospel
seed but evil lurks here too.
We live here with the worldly weed that threatens to undo
the good Lords gospel seed garden of lovely thriving plants.
He has extended his pardon until the sparks advance.
For just as sure as life for us
is death and what it bears.
For tares it is the furnace; for us there are no cares
since we shall shine as bright as day in the kingdom of God.
So grow up straight and do not stray and spread the news abroad.
