This is 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: the battle is not done:
Jesus Who died shall be satisfied,

And earth and Heav’n be one.

This is my Father’s world, dreaming, I see His face.
I open my eyes, and in glad surprise cry, “The Lord is in this place.”

This is my Father’s world, from the shining courts above,
The Beloved One, His Only Son, Came a pledge of deathless love.

This is my Father’s world, should my heart be ever sad?
The lord is King let the heavens ring. God reigns let the earth be glad.

This is my Father’s world. Now closer to Heaven bound,
For dear to God is the earth Christ trod.
No place but is holy ground.

This is my Father’s world. I walk a desert lone.
In a bush ablaze to my wondering gaze God makes His glory known.

This is my Father’s world, a wanderer I may roam
Whate’er my lot, it matters not,
My heart is still at home.

    Dear Courtney,

    I have a very unusual thing to ask of you. Do you mind if I use one of the pictures in this post for something? I have a piano recital coming up and the theme is nature. We are supposed to draw or take a picture that has to do with the sounds of nature. My piece is an arrangement of Fairest Lord Jesus and I was wondering if I could use your picture of the cross. I am planning on doing a collage so I will probably be leaving comments on other posts asking if I can use them too. You don’t have to let me if you don’t want to. Please let me know soon. Thank you very much!

    Lulu
