669. 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
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!

 

12. EL MUNDO ENTERO ES DEL PADRE

El mundo entero es
del Padre celestial;
Su alabanza en la creación
escucho resonar.
¡De Dios el mundo es!
¡Qué grato es recordar
Que en el autor de tanto bien
podemos descansar!

 

El mundo entero es
del Padre celestial;
El pájaro, la luz, la flor
proclaman su bondad.
¡De Dios el mundo es!
El fruto de su acción
Se muestra con esplendidez
en toda la expansión.

 

El mundo entero es
del Padre celestial;
Y nada habrá de detener
su triunfo sobre el mal.
¡De Dios el mundo es!
Confiada mi alma está,
Pues Dios en Cristo, nuestro Rey,
por siempre reinará.
