This Is My Father's World

...I love the words to this old hymn (and the newer arrangement done by AG a couple of years ago:)

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, the birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white, declare their Maker's praise.


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

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!


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.


In the rustling grass I hear Him pass;
He speaks to me everywhere.

This hymn was to be memorized and repeated when I was a young girl in "Explorers" a group before CGIT, Candian Girls in Training...that was rather a FEW years back but it still remains one of my all time favorites, as well. Nice to know you share that particular favorite, too!!
