This Is My Father's World...


This is my Father's world
And to my list'ning 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.
                   - Maltbie D. Babcock, 1858-1901

Yes, oh yes, it is our Father's world. We need to take time to enjoy His beautiful creation each and every day.
