This Is My Father’s World – Hearty Hymns from A to Z



New York Presbyterian pastor Maltbie Davenport Babcock (1858-1901) wrote “This Is My Father’s World” around the turn of the 20th century. With its soothing lyrics and gentle melody, this hymn has been a favorite for children’s choirs and church congregations for generations.


 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.

  1. My wife introduced this hymn to me back in the day. It has long been her favorite and I have come to love it as well.
