God the Creator

ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL
(Alexander/Spohr)

All things bright and beautiful,
All things great and small,
All things wise and wonderful;
Our Father made them all.
Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings;
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

Cold wind in the winter,
Pleasant summer sun,
Ripe fruits in the garden;
He made them, every one.
He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How good is God our Father
Who doeth all things well.

I SING THE MIGHTY POWER OF GOD
(Watts/Wittenberg Gesangbuch)

I sing the mighty power of God
That made the mountains rise;
That spread the flowing seas abroad
And built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained
The sun to rule the day,
The moon shines full at His command
And all the stars obey.

I sing the mighty power of God
That filled the earth with food;
He formed the creatures with His Word,
And then pronounced them good.
Lord, how thy wonders are displayed
Wheree'er I turn my eye;
If I survey the ground I tread
Or gaze upon the sky.

There's not a plant or flower below
But makes Thy glories known;
And clouds arise, and tempests blow
By order from Thy throne;
While all that borrows life from Thee
Is ever in Thy care,
And everywhere that we can be,
Thou, God, art present there.
