With fruitful hands she tends her field;
feeding, cleansing, mending.
Never could an onlooker have told
the changes she is making.
They seem so small, “you’re wasting time!” The world did dare to say.
But by her efforts done for the Lord
The ground began to change.
Not without an adversary, he prowled about threatening her fruit devoured.
But every act of faithfulness
uprooted more of his hidden threats
and by the power of the Son they scorched his plans to death.
Praise the One and only Son
who has given her light and life!
Now shining bright and clear her path
of truth and love and courage.
He’s bound his work upon her heart
and her hands have changed the world.
