"This is My Father's/Mother's World" Updated









This is my Mother’s world, and to my listening ears
All nature sings, and round me rings the music of the spheres
This is my Mother’s world: I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas; Her 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, why should my heart be sad?
The Lord is King, let the heavens ring. God reigns, let the earth be glad.
This is my Father’s world. We’re all redemption bound,
For dear to God, is the earth Christ trod. Every land is holy ground.

This is my Mother’s world; a home for you and me
Let’s take good care, and be sure to share, God’s healing, oh, so free
This is my Mother’s world; Her Spirit lives within
Come shout and sing, all nature brings, our praises to begin
