HAPPY SABBATH — MY FATHER’S WORLD

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.   Spiral Galaxy M81 - spitzer telescope -- NASAThis 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  lily 034Declare 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,
Oh, let me ne’er forget

The battle is not done;
Jesus who died shall be satisfied,
