THE good deeds we have sown,
They are not lost;
Their seeds have crossed
The heavenly borderland and grown
Into eternal flowers there
To make His garden-plots more fair.

Each good deed is a rose
Whose gentle grace
Shall bless the place
Where the good doer's spirit goes;
For all the heavenly mansions stand
In gardens sown by human hand.

Though now invisibly
The gardens grow,
We yet shall know
The flowers of eternity,
And count our roses, one by one,
In that fair realm beyond the sun.
