This was a Sunday school favorite of mine, and still is–This Is My Father’s World. It carries an important message: “This is my Father’s world, and let me ne’er forget that though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.”
Performed by Central Study Hour Worship.
One of my all-time favorite hymns, going back to Sunday school–This Is My Father’s World, here sung by Fernando Ortega. I don’t know about you, but the beauty of God’s handiwork, coupled with a hymn like this, never fails to stir my soul.
I love this old hymn, This Is My Father’s World–especially these lines: “And though the wrong seem oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.” Amen!
Performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy, British Columbia.
I’ve always loved this hymn, This Is My Father’s World. I guess because I love beautiful places. There are those who don’t. But we are here today to celebrate God’s handiwork. Fernando Ortega sings. The beauty whispers, “God is nigh!”
I loved this hymn in Sunday school, I love it now–This Is My Father’s World. Joshua requested this instrumental version by the Quarter Note Quartet. No lyrics, so you have to let the music speak to you as music speaks, and the gorgeous scenery as beauty speaks: all the work of God’s hands.
As to how the musicians got to the top of that basaltic dome, your guess is as good as mine.
Joshua has requested one of my favorite hymns–fell in love with it in Sunday school, so long ago–This Is My Father’s World. Vocals by GLAD; set design by God the Father, maker of heaven and earth.
Having two deaths in my family virtually back-to-back has made hymns more precious to me. I feel them more acutely. But I’ve always loved this one, This Is My Father’s World. “Though the wrong seem oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.”
This sweet old classic hymn is for everyone this morning, but especially for Phoebe, Linda, and Erlene, our sisters and fellowsoldiers: This Is My Father’s World, sung here by Fernando Ortega. Plus lovely pictures of God’s handiwork. Reminds me of the last snowy night we had, when we looked out the window to see two deer looking in.
This Is My Father’s World is one of my favorite hymns. It never fails to move me. I very much wanted it performed by a lady in a print dress on the Sunday school piano, but it seemed every version I looked at on youtube today was being performed by someone who thought he or she was auditioning for a Las Vegas floor show. Finally I found Daniel Choo, here, with his guitar. Thank you, Daniel–very nice.
How I love this hymn! This Is My Father’s World, written by Maltbie Babcock in 1901, from his farm in upstate New York, and set to a traditional English melody in 1915 (according to Cyberhymnal–I don’t actually know all this stuff!), and here performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy, British Columbia. It really goes well with canoeing smoothly over glassy water…
