Maltbie D. Babcocks

This is my Father's world,
And to my list'ning ears,
All nature sings,
And round me rings
The music of the spheres.
This is my Father's world,
I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees,
Of skies and seas;
His hand the wonders wrought.
2. 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 ev'rywhere.
3. 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.
