ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL

This delightful old praise hymn lends itself well to illustration.  Although the page needs lots more pictures, I published it last Friday so we could have it for Sabbath.   Maybe I’ll never finish it,  just keep adding more things bright and beautiful.   So come back again and see how it grows.  All creation sings His praise!

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.

Each little flower that opens,

Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.


All things bright and beautiful,

All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all

The purple-headed mountain,
The river running by,

The sunset and the morning,
That brightens up the sky;

All things bright and beautiful,

All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all

The cold wind in the winter,

The pleasant summer sun,

The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one;

All things bright and beautiful,

All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all

The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows for our play,
The rushes by the water,
To gather every day;

All things bright and beautiful,

All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all


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

All things bright and beautiful,

All creatures great and small,

All things wise and wonderful,

The Lord God made them all.

Words written by Cecil F. Alexander, pub.1848
