This Is My Father's World

Today I am sharing some flowers from my yard and some found nearby on my walks.Please enjoy them and let's remember that 'This is My Father's World'
The words that follow are taken from this song.


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.  
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:  
why should my heart be sad?  
The Lord is King; let the heavens ring!  
God reigns; let the earth be glad!
