Thank you for the many gifts to provide Bibles and study materials to complete inmates requests. The need is so great.
I think it would be appropriate for us to conclude our meditation this morning by singing that hymn of acknowledgement,
"This I My Father's World":
This is my Father's world, And to my list'ning 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 ev'rywhere.
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 word, The battle is not done,
Jesus who died shall be satisfied, And earth and heav'n be one.
