135. The wildflowers in their beauty

All things bright and beautiful,
all creatures great and small,
all things wise and wonderful -
the Lord God made them all.

1 The wildflowers in their beauty,
the mountain ranges tall,
the billabongs and rivers,
and friendly birds that call, [Refrain]

2 The cold wind in the winter,
the bright, life-giving sun,
the ripe fruits in the garden -
he made them every one. [Refrain]

3 The coloured walls of gorges,
the gum trees green and tall,
the rocks, and pools, and palm trees,
the sparkling waterfall, [Refrain]

4 The many-coloured corals,
the creatures of the sea,
of bushland, field or desert,
on farms, or roaming free, [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]
