Lyrics ~ 5 verses
Meter: 76 76 and Refrain
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.
Each little flower that opens,
each little bird that sings,
God made their glowing colours,
and made their tiny wings. Refrain
The purple-headed mountains,
the river running by,
the sunset and the morning
that brightens up the sky. Refrain
The cold wind in the winter,
the pleasant summer sun,
the ripe fruits in the garden:
God made them every one. Refrain
The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows for our play,
The rushes by the water,
To gather ev’ry day. Refrain
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
