(Hosea 10:12)

(Sow With A View To Righteousness)


Fa'ahakho dodo mitaroe,
baso fonami wamasi dania,
Ibe'e fa'eboea dodo lowalangi andro!

Mitoea'o zibohoe,

i'ondrasi ami.

Ba'ena'o ifatoro chomi deoe fangorifi.
Hosea 10:12

English Lyrics

Sow with a view to righteousness,
Reap in accordance with kindness;
Break up your fallow ground,
For it is time to seek the Lord

Sow with a view to righteousness,
Reap in accordance with kindness;
Break up your fallow ground,
For it is time to seek the Lord

Until He comes to rain
righteousness on you.

Until He comes to rain
righteousness on you.

If you love Me, if you love Me
you will obey what I command
If you love Me, if you love Me
you will obey what I command

and I will ask the Father, and He
will give you another counselor
to be with you forever,
forever !!

If you love Me, if you love Me
you will obey what I command
