1 All things which live below the sky,
Or move within the sea,
Are creatures of the Lord most High,
And brothers unto me.
2 I love to hear the robin sing,
Perched on the highest bough;
To see the rook with purple wing,
Follow the shining plough.
3 I love to watch the swallow skim
The river in his flight;
To mark, when day is growing dim,
The glowworm's sil'v'ry light.
4 The seagull whiter than the foam,
The fish that dart beneath;
The lowing cattle coming home;
The goats upon the heath.
5 God taught the wren to build her nest,
The lark to soar above,
The hen to gather to her breast
The offspring of her love.
6 Beneath his heaven there's room for all;
He gives to all their meat;
He sees the meanest sparrow fall
Unnoticed in the street.
7 All-loving Father, King of kings,
The helper of the weak,
Make me a friend of helpless things,
Defender of the weak.
