All things bright and beautiful comes to mind. I loved this song growing up and I pray you enjoy this post today as you reminisce as well. I started a search for the lyrics and up they came, plus a couple of versions of the song. Be blessed!
For this Sunday post during the #Write31Days of Finding Calm in the Chaos, may all things beautiful offer you a calm respite.
All Things Bright and Beautiful
The United Methodist Hymnal Number 147
Text: Cecil Frances Alexander
Music: 17th cent. English melody; arr. by Martin Shaw
Tune: ROYAL OAK, Meter: 76.76 with Refrain
All things bright and beautiful,
all creatures great and small,
all things wise and wonderful:
the Lord God made them all.
1. Each little flower that opens,
2. The purple-headed mountains,
3. The cold wind in the winter,
4. God gave us eyes to see them,
The traditional version played on the organ
Hayley Westenra version from New Zealand – LOVELY!
A version for children
I’m finding calm in the chaos of life of God’s beauty. I pray you do too.
