767. 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,
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)
