251a. Each little flower that opens

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

2 Each little flower that opens,
each little bird that sings,
he made their glowing colours,
he made their tiny wings: [Refrain]

3 The purple-headed mountain,
the river running by,
the sunset, and the morning
that brightens up the sky: [Refrain]

4 The cold wind in the winter,
the pleasant summer sun,
the ripe fruits in the garden,
he made them every one: [Refrain]

*5 The tall trees in the greenwood,
the meadows where we play,
the rushes by the water
we gather every day: [Refrain]

6 He gave us eyes to see them,
and lips that we might tell
how great is God almighty,
who has made all things well: [Refrain]
