The Parable of the Sower

The Parable of the Sower: Mark 4. 1-9

A sower went out to sow his seed,

some fell upon the ground.

The birds swooped down and ate their fill,

as he tossed it all around.

Chorus:

mm-mm

fiddle-dee doo

fiddle-dee day-

de fol de ray

A sower went out to sow his seed,

some fell on rocky clay,

The seed grew fast, then the sun came up

So it withered clean away.

A sower went out to sow some seed,

Some landed in a clump,

Of tangled weeds and cruel thorns,

which choked the seedlings up.

But some seed fell on fertile soil,

The grain was firm and strong.

If you think it produced a hundredfold

You wouldn’t be far wrong.
