This weeks memory verse: I is for…
“I made the earth and created man on it;
it was my hands that stretched out the heavens,
and I commanded all their host.” -Isaiah 45:12
I love how this verse verse goes right along with our Hymn of the Week, which was especially encouraging to our family this week considering our national situation. Pay special note to the last verse and as usual, please visit our “Hooray for Hymns” spot at the top of the page and add your own favorites to our list.
Hymn of the Week: “This is My Father’s World” (Babcock/Sheppard)
This is my Father’s world, and to my listening 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, 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: Why should my heart be sad?
The Lord is King: let the heavens ring! God reigns: let earth be glad!
The last post included a video of the sound of Earth’s song as recorded recently from space by NASA. Reminded me of another video about “the music of the spheres” we had posted a while back that’s worth revisiting…

A wonderful hymn in deed. I miss singing the old hymns like we did in church when I was young. Thank you for sharing.
Hi family – – we have listened to this link several times and we love “How Great is Our God” . . . singing with whales and stars! We added some ‘signs’ to the song (Elsie “signs” the best!!). I am also sharing this with our women’s Bible study. We are studying Revelation. Chapters 4 & 5 take place in the Throne Room of God. Chapter 4 declares Him as the Creator, “Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power for You created all things; and by Your will they existed and were created.” (4:11). Chapter 5 declares Him as our Redeemer. “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.” (5:12). Love and Hugs, Oma
Hey! I think you’re the one who sent us this link to begin with! Thanks! we’ve loved it.
Very good. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for sharing with us another great hymn. Your memory verse in Isaiah reminded me of Daniel 5:21, “The Most High God rules in the kingdom of men, and appoints over it whomever He chooses.” Yes, as your hymn of the week stated, “That though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.”
A powerful verse from our boys’ favorite book of the Bible! Thanks!
