lyrics for "All Things Bright and Beautiful"


(refrain)
All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small,
all things wise and wonderful: the Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens, each little bird that sings,
God made their glowing colors, and made their tiny wings.

All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small,
all things wise and wonderful: the Lord God made them all.

The purple headed mountains, the river running by,
the sunset and the morning that brightens up the sky.

All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small,
all things wise and wonderful: the Lord God made them all.

The cold wind in the winter, the pleasant summer sun,
the ripe fruits in the garden: God made them every one.

All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small,
all things wise and wonderful: the Lord God made them all.

God gave us eyes to see them, and lips that we might tell
how great is God Almighty, who has made all things well.

All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small,
all things wise and wonderful: the Lord God made them all.


words: Cecil Frances Alexander, 1848 (Genesis 1:31)
music: 17th century English melody; arranged by Martin Shaw, 1915
