lyrics

Based on Matthew 13:1–23

VERSE 1
Here’s a story ’bout a man I know
He set out with seed to sow
Some seed fell on the path that day
The birds swooped down and took it away

VERSE 2
Some seed fell on the rocks and stones
Shot up quick, but found no home
Other seeds fell on the thorny ground
The weeds came up and choked them out

CHORUS
Listen up! God gave us ears to hear His Word
Listen up! Then think about everything we’ve heard
Listen up! Our hearts are soil where the Word can grow
Holy Spirit, help us know how to listen up

VERSE 3
Some seed fell where the soil was good
The roots grew deep just like they should
Water and sun made the plants grow high
The fruit was good and multiplied

BRIDGE
If we want to grow then we need to know
The gospel, the gospel
Jesus died and rose to forgive all those
Who believe in Him
