Little Seed

A poem for our son, Joseph…IMG_0783

“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them;
They shall not be ashamed,
But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.”
-Psalm 127:3-5

little seed
grow to be a big tree
an oak of righteousness
the planting of the Lord
little seed
what great joy you bring
the hand of the Lord is on you
for great and mighty things
little seed
you will be strong in the land
you will be powerful by His hand
as we contend with the enemy
at our gate
little seed
like an arrow
you will hit your mark
as you walk closely with the Lord
little seed
my quiver is full
a blessed man I am
to be Papa to you
little seed
stand up!
grow like a moist root
from holy ground
as we water you with His word
little seed
there will be weeds
and tares and thorns
that will confuse and perplex you
little seed
hold onto the seed
the word of God
and you will rule in the midstIMG_1519 of your enemies
little seed
beloved son
with you I am well-pleased
from the moment you were born
even before you were conceived
God told us about you
the great joy you’d bring
little seed
I remember your cry
when you broke the womb
and came to life
like a seed
our dreams had died
buried in the ground
precious tears, precious seed
came alive with you
oh the joy we reaped
little seed
we watch you grow
child on our knees
we rejoice in every progress
every crawl, every tooth
every giggle, every moment
little seed
our joyful dreamer
we will raise you up
to love the Lord
with all your heart
with all your soul
my little seed
may His heart you know
may you grow, grow grow
and go, go, go
to reap a harvest
my little seed

“Those who sow in tears
Shall reap in joy.
He who continually goes forth weeping,
Bearing seed for sowing,
Shall doubtless come again with rejoicing,
Bringing his sheaves with him.”
-Psalm 126-5-6
