SONG TEACHING STEPS

“This Is My Father’s World”

All Creation Sings Fall—Younger © 2017 Celebrating Grace, Inc. All rights reserved.“This Is My Father’s World” Song Teaching Steps, page 1

1. Introduce the song by listening.• Tell children that the author of “This Is My Father’s World” is Maltbie

Babcock, who, when he would take early morning walks, would tell his family that he was going out to see “my Father’s world.”

• Play Demo 2. Ask children to listen and count the number of times they hear the word world. (nine) Have them tap a steady half-note beat as they listen.

2. Teach Section A (meas. 5-20) by matching words to melody.• Display “This Is My Father’s World” Melody Strips 1-4 in order.

• Mix the first four Word Strips, and place them on the wall near the melodies.

• Play Demo 2 through measure 12 then pause the recording.

• Ask four volunteers to place the correct words under the matching melodies.

• Echo sing each phrase.

• Repeat with Melody Strips 5-8 and the last four strips from the Word Strips.

• Have the pianist play one of the melodies at random, and ask a child to come point to that phrase. Lead children to sing the phrase together.

• Ask children if they can find two melodies that are identical. (Melodies 3 and 7) Have them sing those two melodies with text.

• Play Demo 2, and have children sing during each Section A (“This Is My Father’s World”) and pat a half-note beat during Section B (“He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands”).

3. Review the melody and words of Section A (meas. 5-20).• Play “Stop on a Note” Game.

° Display Melody Strips with Word Strips in place.

° Ask the pianist to play each melody as you point to one note at a time.

° Have the pianist stop at random places. Let children identify on what word the pianist stopped.

° Repeat several times, each time starting at the beginning of Section A. After one or two times of play, stop pointing to the notes, and challenge children to track for themselves.

° Continue playing until you have worked your way to the end of Section A.

• Sing Section A together once more as you refer to the strips. Have the pianist play the melody as you sing.

“This Is My Father’s World” Song Teaching Steps, page 2 All Creation Sings Fall—Younger © 2017 Celebrating Grace, Inc. All rights reserved.

4. Check the meaning and sing.• Point to the picture of spheres on the Word Strips (end of Line 4).

• Ask what the word sphere means. (a round object; a globe; a heavenly body, such as a planet or star)

• Talk about the meaning of the phrase His hands the wonders wrought. Explain that wrought means “carefully formed or worked into shape—worked into shape with artistry and skill.” God made all of creation with great thought and skill.

• Refer to the Melody and Word Strips, and lead children to sing Section A without accompaniment.

5. Teach Section B (“He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands”—meas. 22-37).• Write whole world on the board.

• Play Demo 2, beginning at measure 21. Pause the recording in measure 29.

• Have children count how many times they heard the words whole world. (four times)

• Write the wind and the rain on the board. Continue the recording through measure 37.

• Ask how many times they heard this phrase. (three times)

• Lead children to understand that following “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands,” the second half of “This Is My Father’s World” (the same as meas. 13-20 in Section A is sung.)

• Sing Section B without accompaniment, pointing to cue words on the board and moving your hand in the direction of the melody.

Teaching TipMany versions of “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” exist, and children may know a slightly different melody. Move your hand up and down as you sing, and encourage children to move their hands with you to feel the direction of the melody. Or point to scale pitches on the Scale Street Visual to help them sing confidently.

Seven Days of Awesome(Genesis 1—2:3, paraphrased)

Here is the awesome story of creation from the first two chapters of Genesis:

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

At first, the earth was empty and dark, without form or shape. Water covered the entire world.

Then God said, “Let there be light.” And there was light. God separated the light from the dark, and called the light day and darkness night, and God saw that it was good. So, at the end of Day One, there was light.

The next day, God said, “Let there be a huge space above the water.” And that’s exactly what happened! God called the space above the water sky, and God saw that it was good. At the end of Day Two, there was light and there was sky.

The following day God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered in its own place. Let dry ground appear, and let it produce fruitful plants. Let every kind of tree and plant have its own kind of seed.” And it was so. God called the dry ground land and the water He called ocean, and God saw that it was good. By the end of Day Three, there was light, sky, land, and ocean.

The day after that, God said, “Let there be great lights in the sky to mark daytime and nighttime. And that’s exactly what happened! God made a huge light to shine in the daytime, called the sun, and a smaller light to shine at nighttime called the moon. And God saw that it was good.

By the end of Day Four, there was light, sky, land, ocean, sun and moon.

The next day God said, “Let the water and air be filled with living creatures large and small, and let them have young that overflow the oceans and sky.” And it happened just as God said. The oceans were filled with fish and swimming creatures, and the sky was alive with all kinds of flying birds, and God saw that it was good.

By the end of Day Five, there was light, sky, land, ocean, sun, moon, fish, and birds.

The following day God said, “Let the land spring forth with animals of every kind. Then let us make humans, and let them rule over all creation.” And it was so, just as God said. Humans ruled over a glorious world brimming with countless forms of animals and other forms of life, and God saw that it was very good.

By the end of Day Six there was light, sky, land, ocean, sun, moon, fish, birds, animals, and humans.

After six busy days, God rested from His creative work. In fact, God set aside a whole day just for rest. God blessed that resting day, and made it holy.

& 44 œ œ œ œHo ly, ho ly,

˙ ˙ho ly!- - -

So God created everything in six days, and on Day Seven God rested. All together it was Seven Days of Awesome!

• Have the pianist play one of the melodies at random, and ask a child to come point to that phrase. Lead children to sing the phrase together.

• Play Demo 2, and have children sing during each Section A (“This Is My Father’s World”) and pat a half-note beat during Section B (“He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands”).

“O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing”Talk about the hymn writer.

• Tell children that the words of this hymn were written by Charles Wesley. Share the following information about Mr. Wesley:

° Charles Wesley was born in England in 1707.

° Hymn writing came easily for him. He would write hymns at home, at church, in the fields, while riding a horse, or while walking down the street. He wrote over sixty-five hundred hymns.

° He is known as the father of Methodist congregational singing and the Methodist church.

° He wrote “O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing” on the anniversary of his conversion to Christ.

° One of his friends, Peter Böhler, inspired Charles to write this hymn when he told Charles that if he had a thousand tongues he would praise God with them all.

• Explain that this hymn reminds us that God deserves our praise and service.

Listen and move to the hymn.

• Play Demo 14, and have children march to the steady quarter-note beat as they listen.

Closing• Pray, thanking God for His blessings and especially for the start of a new choir year.
