Wheat and the Tares - song

 

 

 

   Wheat and the Tares   

 (Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43)

 

 

The Wheat and the Tares, the Wheat and the Tares,

The Harvest is coming soon!

 

Come now and hear a story, a story about the sod

A story of good and evil, told by the Son of God

 

The kingdom of heaven is like a man 

   who sowed good seed in his field

 

And while men slept, the enemy came, 

   and bad seed there concealed

 

 

When the Wheat sprang up,

   to the servants' surprise, the Tares did with them grow

 

'Master, shall we gather them up?'

But the Master answered, 'NO'

 

'Let them grow together now until the harvest time,

   Gather then, the Tares to burn,

   The Wheat put in barns of mine

 

The Wheat and the Tares, the Wheat and the Tares,

   The Harvest is coming soon!

 

 

'The good seed are My children, 

   the Tares are the devil's own

   They both grow in this weary world, until the end is known

 

'The reapers are the angels who gather out the Tares

   and cast them into a furnace -

   what a terrible doom is theirs!

 

Choose now, choose now, which seed you'll be

   growing up in the earthly sod

The righteous will shine as the sun that day

   in the city of their God!

 

The Wheat and the Tares, the Wheat and the Tares,

   the harvest is coming soon!

 

The Harvest is coming soon!'
