Well there are people
Never receiving
Anything from God at all
Oh, they are shaken
From their believing
When they don't see results
They quickly fall

But don't you waver
Keep on living
In the way God wants you to
Don't get discouraged
Keep on giving
Soon it will come back to you

Chorus:
Keep on casting
Your bread upon the water
Soon it's gonna come back home on every wave
Keep on casting
Your bread upon the water
Soon it's gonna come back home on every wave
Good measure pressed down
Shaken together running over
Soon it's gonna come back home on every wave

Keep on working
Seeking the kingdom
Instead of working for your needs
Keep on sharing the love of Jesus
You know, growing comes from planting seeds

Chorus
