    I LOVE TO TELL THE STORY is the 4th CD by Greg Rice. It is a collection of favorite hymns that have blessed the church for many years.

    The CD is manufactured to resemble a vinyl record album and even begins with the sound of an old scratchy, vinyl record. The project is lovingly dedicated to Greg's grandfather, Dewey W. Crabb, who was an inspiration, not only to his family but to all who were blessed to have known him.

about

Words and Music by Maltbie D. Babcock
Composed 1901

THIS IS MY FATHER'S WORLD is the 3rd track on I LOVE TO TELL THE STORY. The easy smooth jazz feel evokes the feeling of resting in the sovereignty of God.

"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose."

- Romans 8:28 (ESV)

lyrics

1. 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.

2. 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 everywhere.

Instrumental Interlude

3. 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.

This is my Father's world: The battle is not done.
Jesus, who died, shall be satisfied And Earth and Heav’n be one.

Jesus, who died, shall be satisfied And Earth and Heav’n be one.
