31. All Things Bright and Beautiful

Refrain:
All things bright and beautiful,
all creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
our dear God made them all.

1 Each little flower that opens,
each little bird that sings,
God made their glowing colors,
and made their tiny wings. [Refrain]

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]
