All Things Bright and Beautiful

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.

2. The rich man in the castle,
The poor man at the gate,
God made them high or lowly,
And ordered their estate.

3. The purple headed mountain
The river flowing by,
The sunset and the morning
Which brighten up the sky.
  4. The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

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

6. He gave us eyes to see them
And lips that we might tell,
How great is God Almighty
Who has made all things well.
