My Heavenly Father Loves Me


Words and Music by Clara W. McMaster, b. 1904

Whenever I hear the song of a bird
Or look at the blue, blue sky,
Whenever I feel the rain on my face
Or the wind as it rushes by,
Whenever I touch a velvet rose
Or walk by a lilac tree,
I'm glad that I live in this beautiful world
Heavenly Father created for me.

He gave me my eyes that I might see
The color of butterfly wings.
He gave me my ears that I might hear
The magical sound of things.
He gave me my life, my mind, my heart:
I thank him reverently
For all his creations, of which I'm a part.
Yes, I know Heavenly Father loves me.

    I learned this song in Primary as a little boy. Then Sister McMaster was my Mission Mom in the Kansas-Missouri Mission in 1972. I will never forget her, or the words Heavenly Father gave her. It is so simple and so true. I am now a middleage man, and this still makes me cry.
    Thank you Sister McMaster.

    Both the lyrics and the music are a composition that very close expresses what the creation means to each human being.

    Today on Earth Day I will share it with my students.
    This song and others from church have contributed to my job as a mother of five children. They have hellped them remain in the straight and narrow path in life.

    My family has chosen this song for my mother-in-laws funeral. Yes, we know our Heavenly Father loves us all. We are so very blessed not for just the things he has given in this song, for allowing our family to be with my mother-in-law but, espcially for all the many things we are unaware of.
