The times are a’changing, folks, for the worse. We all know this. It is evident in the moral degradation of our culture, the lack of sound leadership, the abandonment of sure and steady standards, the visceral tendency towards barbarism, the breakdown of family unity, the onslaught of worldwide atrocities . . . we could go on and on.

These terrible postures bear down day after day upon our spirits, at times leading us to despair and depression. We must always keep in mind and spirit that we are not to fear, not to despair. Our heavenly Father watches over us and all His creation.

This hymn is such a sweet reminder of this fact. Sing it with joy, sing it with hope, sing it with prayer and sing it with love . . . for the battle is not done!

This is My Father’s World

~ Malthie D. Babcock

.

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

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 everywhere.

.

This is my Father’s world

Oh, 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.

Amen!
