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
