249. All Things Bright and Beautiful

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

1 Each little flow'r that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
God made their glowing colors,
God made their tiny wings. [Refrain]

2 The purple-headed mountains,
The river running by,
The sunset, and the morning
That brightens up the sky. [Refrain]

3 The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden:
God made them ev'ry one. [Refrain]

4 God gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well. [Refrain]
