61. All Things Bright and Beautiful

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

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

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

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