C F G C This is my Father's world: F G C I rest me in the thought C Am F G C of rocks and trees, of skies and seas; F G C his hand the wonders wrought. Instrumental: F G C 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. Instrumental: F G C 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!
