Like a seed, this earthly body
Only dies that life may grow,
Life far greater and more glorious,
More than earthly minds can know.

Sown in tears, raised in joy,
Sown in weakness, raised in might,
Sown in death, raised in life,
One with God in Jesus Christ!

Like a seed, though small and lifeless,
Grows a great and mighty tree,
See in all our earthly glory
Just a seed of what will be!

Like our Savior in His beauty,
Joyful, loving, whole, and free,
We will share eternal splendor
Only heaven’s eyes can see.
