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. – Words by Maltbie D. Babcock
Today is Sunday, a day of rest, set aside by and for our creator. Rather than attending church service, I went for a ride in the countryside. Surrounded by wonders natural and man-made, the lyrics to “This Is My Father’s World” floated through my mind. This beautiful Presbyterian hymn was reportedly inspired by the author’s walks in the woods. Filled with rich imagery and internal rhymes, it captured my sense of wonder and pleasure perfectly.
God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. – Gen. 1:31
