Home


This is my Fathers world 
And to my listening ears, 
All nature sings and round me rings 
The music of the spheres. 


This is my Fathers world, 
I rest me in the thought 
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas, 
His hand, the wonders wrought. 


This is my Fathers world, 
The birds, their carols raise, 
The morning light, the lily white 
Declare their makers praise. 


This is my Fathers world, 
He shines in all that's fair. 
In the rustling grass I hear Him pass, 
He speaks to me everywhere.

 
This is my Fathers world, 
Oh let me neer forget 
That though the wrong seems oft so strong, 
God is the ruler yet. 


This is my Fathers world, 
The battle is not done. 
Jesus, who died, shall be satisfied 
And earth and heaven be one


(Hymn by: Maltbie D. Babock)

  1. Nice photo of the church we got married in and the countryside surrounding this church. What memories this evokes of our beginning!
