this is my father’s world!

sometimes i • we need a reminder of what is true and what gives us hope! the world may have been messed up by us, but nonetheless it’s still my father’s world…

this is my Father’s world,
and to my listening ears
all nature sings, and round me rings
the music of the spheres.
this is my Father’s world:
i rest me in the thought
of rocks and trees, of skies and seas;
his hand the wonders wrought.

this is my Father’s world,
the birds their carols raise,
the morning light, the lily white,
declare their maker’s praise.
this is my Father’s world:
he shines in all that’s fair;
in the rustling grass i hear him pass;
he speaks to me everywhere.

this is my Father’s world.
o let me ne’er forget
that though the wrong seems oft so strong,
God is the ruler yet.
this is my Father’s world:
why should my heart be sad?
the Lord is King; let the heavens ring!
God reigns; let the earth be glad!

in the midst of life God is here!
