415. All Things Bright and Beautiful

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

1 Each radiant flower that opens,
each vibrant bird that sings,
God made their glowing colours,
God made their lively wings. [Refrain]

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

3 The rocky mountain splendour,
the loon's wild, haunting call,
the great lakes and the prairies,
the forest in the fall. [Refrain]

4 God gave us eyes to see them,
and lips that we might tell
how great is the Creator,
who has made all things well. [Refrain]
