Theme: God

1.  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.

2.  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.
