Lyrics : The Soils Of The Heart
What is the Kingdom of Heaven like, to what can it be compared?
To a farmer who went out to sow his seeds, spreading them everywhere.
And as he scattered the seeds some of them fell...along the path,
Where the birds came down and ate them all up, the seeds never had a chance. 
 
Chorus:
Is your heart like the soil that lies along the path,
Rough and hard, and beaten down by all the hurts and pains of the past?
Cause if your heart is like the soil that lies along the path,
You won’t receive His Word even though you’ve heard He gives life to those who ask.
 
What is the Kingdom of Heaven like, to what can it be compared?
To a farmer who went out to sow his seeds, spreading them everywhere.
And as he scattered the seeds some of them fell...on the rocky ground,
where they sprang up fast, but couldn’t last when the heat began to come down.
 
Chorus:
Is you heart like the soil that lies on the rocky ground,
that responds to the Word, only to turn when trials come around?
Cause if your heart is like the soil that lies on the rocky ground
you’ll never see a victory because you just won’t stand your ground.
 
What is the Kingdom of Heaven like, to what can it be compared?
To a farmer who went out to sow his seeds, spreading them everywhere.
And as he scattered the seeds some of them fell...among the weeds, and the thorns
And though the roots went deep, they were choked by the weeds and the fruit was never formed.
 
Chorus:
Is your heart like the soil that lies among the weeds and thorns,
open to the Word of God, yet still ruled by the cares of this world?
Cause if your heart is like the soil that lies among the weeds and thorns
you’ll never see through all He wants you to do, because your loyalty is torn.
 
What is the Kingdom of Heaven like, to what can it be compared?
To a farmer who went out to sow his seeds, spreading them everywhere.
And as he scattered the seeds some of them fell on the rich soil of the field
where the roots went down deep into the ground, and a hundred-fold was the yield.
 
Chorus:
Is your heart like the soil that lies in the open field
soft, and moist, a premium choice, through which His Word can be revealed?
Cause if your heart is like the soil that lies in the open field
you’ll always produce abundant fruit, and His love will always be your shield.
 
This is what the Kingdom of Heaven’s like, it’s this and so much more.
So open your life, open your heart to the Spirit of the Lord.
He will come in a break up the solid ground, remove all the rocks and the thorns,
And in His time you’ll be refined, and you’ll see your life transformed.
 
Chorus:
May your heart be like the soil that lies in the open field.
May it be soft and moist, a premium choice, through which His Word can be revealed.
May your heart be like the soil that lies in the open field
May you always produce abundant fruit, and may His love always be your shield.
