Terra Beata Farm

I made the tiles for my kitchen backsplash. The larger center tile has the first verse of "This is My Father's World" surrounding the bird. It says

"This is my Father's world,
And to my listening ears,
All nature sings and 'round me rings,
The music of the spheres."

Every hymn has a title for the words and a title for the tune. This tune is called Terra Beata (Latin - pronounced Bay-ah'-ta) and means Blessed World. We chose this name for our farm because the words of the hymn attest to God's sovereignty and assure us of His presence.
