15. All Things Bright and Beautiful

1 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 colors,
he made their tiny wings. [Refrain]

2 The rocky mountain splendor,
the haunting curlew's call,
the great lakes and the prairies,
the forests in the fall: [Refrain]

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

4 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]
