this is my father's world

(Suggested Capo 4) 

      G        D/F#      G

This is my Father’s world,     

        C         G         D/F#

And to my list’ning ears

      G          D/F#         Em

All nature sings, and round me rings

      G         D/F#     G

The music of the spheres.

    G         C           G  

This is my Father’s world:

   C          D/F#     G

I rest me in the thought 

      G              D/F#        Em     

Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas

       G              D/F#        G

His hand the wonders wrought.




        G       D/F#     G

This is my Father’s world:  

       C              G        D/F#

The birds their carols raise,

       G            D/F#       Em

The morning light, the lily white,

     G                D/F#     G

Declare their Maker’s praise.

      G         C          G  

This is my Father’s world:

      C           D/F#         G

He shines in all that’s fair;

          G           D/F#        Em  

In the rustling grass I hear Him pass,

      G              D/F#        G

He speaks to me everywhere.


      G         D/F#      G

This is my Father’s world: 

      C          G      D/F#

Oh, let me ne’er forget 

           G              D/F#              Em

That though the wrong seems oft so strong,

        G       D/F#     G

God is the ruler yet.

      G         C          G  

This is my Father’s world,

      C         D/F#     G

The battle is not done:

      G           D/F#            Em  

Jesus who died shall be satisfied,

        G              D/F#          G

And earth and Heav’n be one
