I rest me in the thought

March 13, 2012 § Leave a comment

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.

-Maltbie Davenport Babcock, This Is My Father’s World, 1901
