God is the Ruler yet November 4, 2008

Filed under: Music and Lyrics — Michelle @ 11:54 pm



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
of rocks and trees, of skies and seas;
his hand the wonders wrought.


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.


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!

    I found your blog through Anna Fritz and just wanted to tell you how precious your “Fragile” article was. Transparency and vulnerability is too rare a thing amongst believers today and it so refreshed and overjoyed me to read yours. Cling to your Savior, dear girl, and rest in His consolations and delight in every moment He graces you.
    Thank you,
    Molly Moody
