    How wonderful are the words of Cecil Alexander - god bless everyone of you

    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 colours,
    He made their tiny wings.

    All things bright ...

    The rich man in his castle,
    The poor man at his gate,
    God made them high and lowly,
    And ordered their estate.

    All things bright ...

    The purple headed mountain,
    The river running by,
    The sunset and the morning,
    That brightens up the sky;−

    All things bright ...

    The cold wind in the winter,
    The pleasant summer sun,
    The ripe fruits in the garden,−
    He made them every one:

    All things bright ...

    The tall trees in the greenwood,
    The meadows where we play,
    The rushes by the water,
    We gather every day;−

    All things bright ...

    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 ...

    I don't think they even sang verse 3 when I was at school.

    All things dull and ugly,
    All creatures short and squat,
    All things rude and nasty,
    The Lord God made the lot;

    Each little snake that poisons,
    Each little wasp that stings,
    He made their brutish venom,
    He made their horrid wings.

    All things sick and cancerous,
    All evil great and small,
    All things foul and dangerous,
    The Lord God made them all.

    Each nasty little hornet,
    Each beastly little squid.
    Who made the spikey urchin?
    Who made the sharks? He did.

    All things scabbed and ulcerous,
    All pox both great and small.
    Putrid, foul and gangrenous,
    The Lord God made them all.
