He Owns the Cattle
(on a Thousand Hills)
Words and Music by John W. Peterson
"For every beast of the forest is mine,
and the cattle upon a thousand hills."
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 stars 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 -
I know that He will care for me.
