The First Day Of Summer

On this first day of summer there is a hymn running through my mind – This Is My Father’s World – so appropriate for this beautiful summer day. The flowers are in bloom, the vegetable garden is growing, we’ve already enjoyed spinach, kale, lettuce, summer squash, zuchinni, and two peas! Thank You God for Your amazing creation!

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!
