Wheat and the Tares



The Wheat and the Tares

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?"
And 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 shall shine as the Son that day
In the kingdom of their God!

The Wheat and the Tares, the Wheat and the Tares,
The Harvest is coming soon!


(from Matthew 13)
