This Is My Father's World

for SATB Choir, Piano & Violin

Text by Maltbie D. Babcock

Published with Hinshaw Music


What a gorgeous setting for church or school choirs! Superb choral writing and a marvelous piano accompaniment with violin obbligato make this a truly exceptional arrangement of the traditional hymn. Highly recommended!

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
The birds their carols raise
The morning light, the lily white
Declare their maker's praise

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
Oh, let me never forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong
God is the ruler yet

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" arr. Elaine Hagenberg
