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.

most of them on my walk this morning!)

  2. Such beauty as here. I've taken so many photos over the years but must do something with them someday to make it worthwhile. Your set up is great with that old familiar special song. Thanks for sharing.
