Each little flow'r that opens, Each little bird that sings, He made their glowing colors, He made their tiny wings.2. The purpleheaded mountain, The river running by, The sunset and the morning That brightens up the sky.3. The cold wind in the winter, The pleasant summer sun, The ripe fruits in the garden: He made them every one.4. He gave us eyes to see them, And lips that we might tell How great is God Almighty, Who hath made all things well.
