A New Song for Children

March 2, 2013

I recently wrote new words to be sung to the tune of Row, Row, Row Your Boat, a well-known children’s song. My song, Sow, Sow, Sow the Word, teaches children numerous truths that have great significance for this life and the one to come.

I have included footnotes in each stanza that give Scripture passages for the major ideas in the song. Explaining these biblical truths to children when you teach them the song should make their singing it much more profitable.

Sow, Sow, Sow the Word

Sow, sow, sow the Word
Ev’rywhere you go.[1]
Joyfully, joyfully, joyfully, joyfully[2]
Tell men what you know.

Sow, sow, sow the Word
Ev’ryone must hear.[3]
Solemnly, solemnly, solemnly, solemnly[4]
Tell them Whom to fear.[5]

Sow, sow, sow the Word
Ev’ry day and night.[6]
Thoroughly, thoroughly, thoroughly, thoroughly
Teach them all that’s right.[7]

Sow, sow, sow the Word
Ev’ry child of God.
Patiently, patiently, patiently, patiently[8]
Turn men back to God.[9]

Sow, sow, sow the Word
You who know God’s love.
Lovingly, lovingly, lovingly, lovingly[10]
Show that God is love.[11]
