My Father’s World – lyrics

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
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 heaven be one

Lyrics: Maltbie D. Babcock, 1901
