Little Creatures in the Garden

 
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, 
 God made their glowing colors, 
 and made their tiny wings. 
 The purple-headed mountains, 
 the river running by, 
 the sunset and the morning 
 that brightens up the sky.
 
The cold wind in the winter, 
 the pleasant summer sun, 
 the ripe fruits in the garden: 
 God made them every one. 
 
  God gave us eyes to see them, 
 and lips that we might tell 
 how great is God Almighty, 
 who has made all things well. 
 -Cecil Frances Alexander
 
All photos are taken in a friend's beautiful.

  3. These are glorious shots. The bird is beautiful and it's so difficult to get those butterflies so this shot was a real treat. Well done.

  4. One of my favorite hymns and beautiful photographs. Thank you so much for sharing them. I was particularly taken with the first one. I suppose we all have our favorites but I think this one was mine, although I truly did enjoy them all.
