This is My Father’s World

Elliot is preaching on Psalm 125 this sunday and asked us to sing this hymn as a response to the trust we are called to hold on to with a God “who cannot be shaken but endures forever.”  Here is a demo recording we made this week to help us meditate on the truths of the text.

This is My Father’s World
mp3 | leadsheet | lyrics

This is my Father’s world, and to my listening 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.

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 Heav’n be one.
