The Wheat of Heaven

Taken from the stalk of Calvary

Placed within the dark, cold earth

Silent lies the Wheat of heaven

There to wait resurrection birth

Left alone in fragrant seed coat

Till the time had come to pass

It would soon give way to victory

Life eternal sprang forth at last

When death’s grip no longer held Him

Wakened by the Spirit’s power

Setting free the Shoot of Jesse

This would be salvation’s hour

He had died upon that hillside

Buried in a borrowed grave

Now he lives in promised victory

Shared with those He came to save

It was said that one should perish

That a nation might survive

Through the sacrifice of Jesus

All God’s seedlings leapt alive

Oh the harvest of His promise
