A modern re-working of a timeless, old hymn. It is also featured in a forthcoming Full of Eyes animation.


This is my Father’s world

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
Creation breathes his promised peace / His hand such wonders wrought

This is my Father’s world / though thorns and thistles grow
Held fast in faith I watch and wait / His mercies to behold
This is my Father’s world / the battle is not done
Jesus who died will be satisfied and earth and heavn be one

When the weight of my sin is great / Help me Father
To remember my debt is paid
Though this world is a troubled one / courage Oh my soul
For the world He has overcome

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 / all things he will employ
By the suffering Son, sovereign love has won / and sorrow will turn to joy
