This Is My Father's World

Lyrics/Music: Maltbie D Babcock, Franklin L Sheppard
      C     G7       C
This is my Father's world,
    F           C    G
And to my listening ears
     C       Am       F        C
All nature sings and round me rings
     C    G7        C
The music of the spheres.

     C      F  G     C
This is my Father's world;
   F               C
I rest me in the thought
   C          Am        F        C 
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas
     C        G7        C
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 heaven be one.
