Oh the tears as they sowed
The last sack of corn -
Into ground they'd carefully prepared.
They were hungry and needed courage
To face up to the days ahead.
A meagre diet until the time
When that sack of corn
Would bring forth a bountiful harvest -
Of golden grain - but yet again they would have to retain
Enough - that a future crop would be secure and blest.
Like a sea of gold it swayed in the wind -
When ripe to gather in,
And oh what joy - the whole family to employ.
They worked with a will - rejoicing -
Bringing in the sheaves - and weeping tears of Joy.
What a day it will be
When Gods harvest we see -
And we are part of that mighty throng,
Oh yes - there'll be tears
And rejoicing - the time come - the waiting all gone.
