My Father’s world

images

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 Heav’n be one.

On the lookout

Rain of flower

Be on the lookout for mercies.
The more we look for them,
the more of them will we see.
Blessings brighten
when we count them.
Out of the determination
of the heart the eyes see.

–Maltbie D. Babcock
(1858-1901)
