This Is My Father’s World ~ hymn

This is my Father's world.

This

Is

My

Father’s

World.

 

Not mine and I am so thankful that I can remind myself of His control over all that is going on. Control does not mean He is manipulating things according to His plan but rather that He knows, cares, and will have the final say.

In our hymnal, this is opposite a printing of scripture from the book of Job, chapter 38, where God is reminding Job the He created all that is. God asks many questions, spoke many reminder about His work. I found so much peace this evening while listening to God speak through this passage. He is the author and founder and creator of all that is. Listen to Him.

Blessings,
Lori, At Home.

You can listen to this sung by our congregation as the first hymn of our evening service on Sunday, June 7. The first bit of the video is announcements. The song starts at 7:55. If you keep listening, our minister Bobby Wheat teaches II John.

This Is My Father’s World

words: Maltbie D Babcock (1901)
music: Franklin L Sheppard (1915)

1 This is my Father’s world,
And to my listening ears,
All nature sings and round me rings
The music of the sphere’s.
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.

2 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.

3 This is my Father’s world.
Oh, let me never 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.

    Oh! I’ve done this one on my blog! It’s a good song, I grew up singing it often.
