All Things Bright and Beautiful

We have had a beautiful Sunday today; All Things Bright and Beautiful came to me. This is a lesser-known children's song, but I sing it with my kids a lot. I've changed "The Lord God" to "Our Parents" and changed the male pronouns to be plural.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
Our Parents made them all.

1. Each little flow’r that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
They made their glowing colors,
They made their tiny wings:

2. The purple-headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brighten up the sky:

3. The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
They made them ev’ry one:

4. The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water
We gather ev’ry day:
