All Things Bright and Beautiful (Chorus)

Full Text

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.

2 The purple-headed mountain,
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, every 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]
