456. All Things Bright and Beautiful

1 [Refrain:] All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

2 Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings:
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings. [Refrain]

3 The purple headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset, and the morning
That brightens up the sky, [Refrain]

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

5 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]

Amen.
