This track is included in our “Even There” CD Album.
This, this is my Father’s world, and to my listening ear
All nature around me sings the music of the sphere.
This, this is my Father’s world; I’m resting in the thought:
The rocks and trees, the skies and seas from His hand were wrought.
This, this is my Father’s world, the birds their carols raise.
Morning light and the lily white declare their Maker’s praise.
This, this is my Father’s world; He shines in all that’s fair.
Through rustling grass I hear Him pass; He speaks everywhere.
This is my Father’s world. O let me not forget
That though the wrong seems oh so strong, God is the Ruler yet.
Someday all will be right!
Someday the darkness will be shattered by the light!
Someday our Creator will be King forever –
Jesus will reign someday!
(Traditional Melody, Sung with Congregation)
This is my Father’s world – why should my heart be sad?
For He is King, let the heavens ring and let the earth be glad!
This is my Father’s world and while on earth I roam
Whate’er my lot it matters not for God is on the Throne!
