Seeds of God

Pear seeds grow to pear trees
Grass seeds grow to sod
Nut seeds grow to nut trees
God seeds grow to God

For His seed is within us
Let us nurture it to grow
Through the Word and prayer
His very nature, know

Let this be our treasure
To cherish and to keep
Our joy and our hope
Let its roots run deep

In soil of the soul
To permeate and seep
Let His blossom bloom
The fruits of Spirit, reap

“The seed of God is in us. Given an intelligent and hard-working farmer, it will thrive and grow up to God, whose seed it is; and accordingly, its fruits will be God-nature. Pear seeds grow into pear trees, nut seeds into nut trees, and God seed into God.”
—Meister Eckhart
