All Things Bright and Beautiful

Written in 1848 by Mrs. Cecil Frances Alexander.

Refrain: All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,.
'twas God that made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing color,
He made their tiny wings.

Refrain:

The purple headed mountains,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brightens up the sky.

Refrain:

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

Refrain:

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

Refrain:
