All Things Bright and Beautiful (1)

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,

Reflection of children on pond

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.

The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,

He made them, high or lowly,
And ordered their estate.

Cecil Alexander wrote this hymn for children in 1848.
