This Is My Father’s World

This morning while looking for something to share with those of you who follow the blog, I came across something that took me back to my childhood.
Looking in the history of hymns, there is one I remember singing in church as a child, “This Is My Father’s World”.
I was born and grew up in Lockport, NY and discovered that Maltbie Babcock, author of the hymn, was the Pastor of the Presbyterian church in Lockport when he wrote the hymn back in the 1890’s.
This is a beautiful old hymn that I have not heard since I was a child.

“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, The battle is not done,
Jesus who died shall be satisfied, And earth and Heaven be one.”

Psalms 50:b
For the world is Mine, and the fulness thereof.
