Amen: additional lyrics by Kyle Pederson
This is My Father's World: lyrics by Maltbie Babcock

Text:

In the morning when I rise,
at the evening’s last light and all through the deep night,
Amen

Through joy and jubilation,
through trial and tribulation,
Let all creation sing,
“Amen.”

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,
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,
oh let me ne’er forget; 
That though the wrong
seems oft so strong,
God is the ruler yet.

Notes:

This mash-up of two popular melodies proclaims that God works for good—in the good, the bad, and the in between, God’s spirit works for healing and wholeness.
