“We Sing” Wednesday – He Owns the Cattle on a Thousand Hills

This is another song I learned in the Good News Club my parents taught. My mom made large graphic song books to teach the songs to the children who attended the weekly club hosted in our home. Volunteers were selected from the group of gathered kids. They were invited to the front to hold the books and turn the pages to lead the remaining children  through the songs.

I can still picture these illustrated songbooks. I asked my mom recently if she still had any of these songs so I could share photos. She couldn’t find them. 🙁

He Owns The Cattle On A Thousand Hills
by John W. Peterson

He owns the cattle on a thousand hills
The wealth in every mine.
He owns the rivers and the rocks and rills,
The sun and the starts that shine.

Wonderful riches more than tongue can tell,
He is my father so they’re mine as well.
He owns the cattle on a thousand hills
And I know that He will care for me!
