Lyrics

Lyrics from Church Praise: Comprising Part I. Complete Metrical Psalms; Part II. Hymns (no. 433; p. 357)

1. 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 colours,
He made their tiny wings.

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

4. The purple-headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset, and the morning
That brightens up the sky;

5. The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,—
He made them everyone.

6. The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water
We gather every day;—

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

Lyrics from Hymns for Christian Worship, 1909 (no. 540)

Chorus.
All things bright and beatiful,
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 his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
God made them high or lowly,
And ordered their estate.

3. The purple-headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brightens up the sky;—

4. The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,—
He made them ev'ry one;

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.
