90. All Things Bright and Beautiful

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

1 Each little flower that opens,
each little bird that sings--
he made their glowing colors,
he made their tiny wings. (Refrain)

2 The purple headed mountain,
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--
he made them ev'ry 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)
