>This is my Father’s world

>One of my favorite verses of song:

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 Heav’n be one.

Maltbie D. Babcock, 1901

It doesn’t get much better than that.

    >and though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.Great reminders, I think of songs like “a mighty fortress” and marvel that the church has been singing that for 500+ years and the its still relevant today!

    >Amen! Wow, what a good song. Sometimes I hear that it’s old and then shy away without hearing the message behind it. Good stuff!
