Another year is almost gone –
How much of God's Seed have I sown?
How well have the Seed grown?
How much caring love for their growth was by me shown?

Was the harvest one that brought forth bountifully;
Or was the fruit, if any, a scarcity?
There was so much more I could have done;
If only I had not sought after so much worldly fun.

There was plenty I knew to do,
And I knew there was so very few;
Why was I one of those to be so neglect
Of that which the Lord, of me, had a right to expect?
