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. Refrain
The purple-headed mountain,
the river running by,
the sunset, and the morning
that brightens up the sky. Refrain
The cold wind in the winter,
the pleasant summer sun,
the ripe fruits in the garden,
he made them every one. Refrain
He gave us eyes to see them,
and lips that we might tell
how great is God Almighty,
who has made all things well. Refrain

My son and his partner presented me one day with this beautiful bunch of Dutch Irises ! So delicate and beautiful.
I made the following scrap book page using the photos.
