This Is My Father’s World

This is my Father’s world: the battle is not done, Jesus, who died, shall be satisfied, and earth and heaven be one…. So I anticipate the consummation of the glorious vision of Revelation when earth and heaven become one and the glory of the Lord covers the earth as the waters cover the seas.

This morning, I heard these lyrics to the hymn, This Is My Father’s World. And as I heard them, I sensed God’s Spirit breathe on them afresh. It was what I needed in this moment. I hope they speak to you as well.

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 world:

the battle is not done,

Jesus, who died, shall be satisfied,

and earth and heaven be one.

Lord, this creation truly is my Father’s world. And although injustice seems to prevail, my God is king. So I anticipate the consummation of the glorious vision of Revelation when earth and heaven become one and the glory of the Lord covers the earth as the waters cover the seas. And until then, may my words and thoughts and life embody “Hallowed be your name; your kingdom come; your will be done — all of this on earth as it is in heaven.” Amen.
