        Bb    F             Bb 
This is my Father’s world,
        Eb      Bb         F
And to my list’ning ears
      Bb     F                 Gm
All nature sings, and round me rings
      Bb      F          Bb
The music of the spheres.
       

      Bb     Eb        Bb 
This is my Father’s world:
   Eb      F           Bb 
I rest me in the thought
      Bb          F             Gm      
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas
       Bb         F              Bb
His hand the wonders wrought.

 


        Bb    F            Bb 
This is my Father’s world:
         Eb       Bb          F
The birds their carols raise,
       Bb       F               Gm
The morning light, the lily white,
      Bb         F              Bb
Declare their Maker’s praise.
        Bb    Eb           Bb
This is my Father’s world:
      Eb       F               Bb
He shines in all that’s fair;
         

            Bb       F           Gm      
In the rustling grass I hear Him pass,
       Bb         F              Bb
He speaks to me everywhere.

 

 


       Bb    F             Bb 
This is my Father’s world: 
      Eb       Bb         F
Oh, let me ne’er forget 
         Bb           F                       Gm
That though the wrong seems oft so strong,
      Bb      F        Bb
God is the ruler yet.
        Bb   Eb           Bb
This is my Father’s world,
       Eb     F         Bb
The battle is not done:
      Bb       F                  Gm       
Jesus who died shall be satisfied,
       Bb            F                  Bb
And earth and Heav’n be one
