The Song of the Seed

I see, O Yah, that I’m a seed
You’ve given me whate’er I need

To grow, to live, to serve my King
A hope unending, songs to sing

Encased within my mortal shell
Are works to do, and words to tell

I feel like bursting, yet I know
That first You’ll plant me, then I’ll grow

And so, I’m resting in Your hand
Until You plant me in the land

And then I’ll burst, send forth my shoot
In You I’ll grow a solid root

You’ll water me, You’ll fill me up
Your grace will overflow my cup

And from the ground You’ll nourish me
And soon I’ll grow to be a tree

And toward the heavens I will shoot
I’ll send forth branches, bear much fruit

But now I’m still just waiting here
But Yah, You know, I should not fear

You’ll plant me when the time is right
Within the dirt, away from light

And I will push and I will grow
The way to light I’ll somehow know

You’ve told me, so I know that I
To grow and be a tree, must die

And still I want to be a tree
For that is what you want for me

So take me, when the spring comes ’round
I’ll give my life within the ground

I’ll use what’s stored inside of me
My wisdom, strength, and energy

And when I do, I know I’ll be
A shoot, a sapling, then a tree

When all is done, I know it’s true
I’ll bear delicious fruit for You

So cast me to the dirt, I’ll die
To bear much fruit, to touch the sky

Yeshua answered them, saying, “The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified. Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much fruit. He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” -John 12:23-25

I am a seventeen-year-old girl who loves to write, especially fiction. I write many stories and poems. I usually have a moral or lesson behind my writings, for I hope these stories and poems, which Yehovah (God) helped me to write, will glorify Him as I share them on this blog. Welcome to my blog and I hope you enjoy your stay!

  1. Beautiful poetry/poem about the seed and how it relates to our life in Christ. It’s so soothing to read it…mostly because of the content, but also because it rhymes. ❤️

    1. Thank you, that’s great that you find it “soothing.” I know you like the rhymes! 😀

    1. Thank you! It makes me so glad to hear that my poems are an encouragement. I just write what Yeshua sets on my heart–what He’s teaching me.

      I’m in the middle of writing a letter to you. Hopefully you will have it next week!
