The Field Of The World

This is the field, the world below,
In which the sowers came to sow,
Jesus the wheat, satan the tares,
For so the word of truth declares:
And soon the reaping time will come,
And angels shout the harvest home.

Most awful truth! and is it so?
Must all the world that harvest know?
Is every man a wheat or tare?
Then for the harvest O prepare!
For soon the reaping time will come,
And angels shout the harvest home.

To love my sins, - a saint to appear,
To grow with wheat - yet be a tare,
May serve while I live below,
Where tares and wheat together grow,
But soon the reaping time will come,
And angels shout the harvest home.

But all who truly righteous be
Their Father's kingdom then shall see;
And shine like suns for ever there:
He that hath ears, now let him hear;
For soon the reaping time will come,
And angels shout the harvest home.

So true, it especially strikes me for its timeliness. The parable of the wheat and the tares has been coming to my mind for several days!

Thanks for sharing this righteous little poem, jiggyfly. It is giving me interesting directions to ponder. When I first read this thread, the forum daily scripture verse was, "Then Jesus declared, 'I am the bread of life.'" (John 6:35) While we are in the field of the world, we are growing into a unified harvest, to become like Christ our final destination.

GOD bless you! :)
