There is a law we all should heed
As we live each day on this earth.
You will find it mighty indeed
But please understand it first.
It is a law that is universal,
Immense in its application.
You can be blessed by its daily rehearsal
Or doomed by its sure rotation.
The facts of this law you’ve already met;
It’s the source of both joy and weeping.
What you sow is what you will get,
It’s the Law of Sowing and Reaping.
In what circumstances will this law work?
It applies in all that you do.
Unkind words and deeds you shirk
Will surely come back to you
You will reap if you sow,
A fact that stands without doubt.
The nature of the seed that is sown
Is reproduced in the sprout.
You will reap what you sow.
Think clearly about that fact.
If heartache and sorrow you would forego,
Be careful of how you act.
If love and respect is what you desire,
Then that is what you give out.
Choose to encourage and inspire
In whatever you speak about.
Whatever you sow, you will get more.
In addition, then multiplication.
Blessings or curses are in store
Unhindered by limitation.
We shall reap if we do not lose heart
So keep on doing what’s right.
Pursue what is good and do your part
Keeping this law in sight.
