Focusing Music    “Ayre”    – Georg Philipp Telemann

*Opening Words

Small as is our whole system compared with the infinitude of creation,

Brief as is our life compared with the cycles of time,

We are so tethered to all by the beautiful dependencies of law,

That not only the sparrow’s fall is felt to the uttermost bound

but the vibrations set in motion by the words that we utter

reach through all space and the tremor is felt through all time.    Maria Mitchell


“This Is My Father’s World”    #154

“This Is God’s Wondrous World”    Screens

Malbie D. Babcock, 1858-1901, alt. from Voices United, the hymnal of the United Church of Canada

This is God’s wondrous world, and to my listening ears,

All nature sings, and round me rings the music of the spheres.

This is God’s wondrous world, I rest me in the thought

Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas,

God’s hand the wonders wrought.

This is God’s wondrous world, the birds their carols raise,

The morning light, the lily white, declare their maker’s praise.

This is God’s wondrous world. God shines in all that’s fair,

In the rustling grass or mountain pass,

God’s voice speaks everywhere.

This is God’s wondrous world. O let me ne’er forget

That though the wrong seems oft so strong. God is the ruler yet.

This is God’s wondrous world: why should my heart be sad?

Let voices sing, O let the heavens ring!

God reigns, let earth be glad.
