Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

90. 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 flower that opens,
each little bird that sings--
he made their glowing colors,
he 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--
he made them ev'ry one. (Refrain)

4 He gave us eyes to see them,
and lips that we might tell
how great is God Almighty,
who has made all things well. (Refrain)
