Sowing the Seed

An angel paused in his onward flight
With a seed of love and truth and right,
And said, “Oh, where can this seed be sown
That it yield more fruit when fully grown?”

“To whom can this precious seed be given
That it bear more fruit for earth and heaven?”
The Saviour heard and said as He smiled
“Place it at once in the heart of a child.”

The angel whispered the blessed truth
To a weary teacher of precious youth;
Her face grew bright with heavenly light
As she led their thought in the way of right.
