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

1 Each little flow’r that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He 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,
He made them every one. [Refrain]

4 The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
To gather every day. [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]
