435. 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 colours,
God made their tiny wings. [Refrain]

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

3 The rocky mountain splendour,
the haunting curlew's call,
the great lakes and the prairies
the forests in the fall. [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]
