Tall Pine Tree Quilt Block and a Song for Sunday

This Is My Father's World

This is my Father's world,
And to my listening ears
All nature sings,
and found 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.

       written by Maltbie D. Babcock (1858-1901) in 1901

  1. Your blocks are great and I do like the tall pine tree block, but I have to say, your photos of nature are amazing. I love that last one of the sun set.

  2. That has always been one of my favorite hymns. I love the pictures you use as illustration.

  3. Love the inclusion of this hymn with the pine tree quilt block. This is my kind of blogging!

  4. God made us a wonderful place to live. Thanks God!

  5. Thanks for this post. Someday nature will sing and we will hear it!

  6. "His hand the wonders wrought."........Yes, indeed!


I love hearing from readers. Your comments make my day!
