“…breaking news out of Haiti: the largest, most powerful earthquake
In the region’s history…”
“…if the federal judge’s ruling is allowed to stand, this years’
‘National Day of Prayer’ could likely be the country’s last…”

Thy will be done…on earth as it is in heaven…

“…the number of hungry people worldwide has reached one billion
For the first time since 1970. Does this news surprise you…”

Bless this day, our daily bread
And forgive our trespasses…

“…a few moments ago something crashed into the south tower of
The World Trade Center…”

[Child]
But deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom
And the power
And the glory foreve
Amen

[Verse 1]
This is my Father’s world
And to my listening ears
All nature sings
And round me rings
The music of the spheres…
(Music of the spheres…)

[Chorus]
This is my father’s world
I rest me in the thoughts
Of rocks and trees
Of skies and seas
His hand the wonders wrought…

[Verse 2]
This is my Father’s world
The birds their carols raise
The morning light
The lily white
Declare their maker’s praise…
(Declare their maker’s praise…)

[Chorus]
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…

[Bridge]
This is my Father’s world…
(Created by Him.)

This is my Father’s world…
(Created by Him, for Him.)

This is my Father’s world…
(Created by Him.)

Even those upon the throne
They exist for Him alone

This is my Father’s world…
(Created by Him, for Him.)

This is my Father’s world…
(Created by Him, for Him.)

This is my Father’s world…
(Created by Him.)

He was made to give Him praise
And You can’t take that away…hey

[Verse 3]
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

And though the wrong
Seems oft so strong…

God is the ruler yet….!

[Chorus]
This is my Father’s world
My shield, my heart beset
The Lord is King
Let the heavens ring
God reigns
Let the earth be glad

The Lord is King
Let the heavens ring

(God reigns, let the earth be glad…!)

[Transition]
(Created by Him, for Him)
(Created by Him, for Him)

This is my Father’s world…
(Created by Him, for Him)

The rocks and the trees
And the skies and the seas

This is my Father’s world…
(Created by Him, for Him.)

Created by Him, for Him

This is my Father’s world…!
(Created by Him.)

Even those upon the throne
They exist for Him alone

This is my Father’s world
(Created by Him, for Him.)

The Lord is King
Let the heavens ring

This is my Father’s world
(Created by Him, for Him.)

He was made to give Him praise
And you can’t take that away

This is my Father’s world
