Hymn: All things bright and beautiful

  • All things bright and beautiful,
    All creatures great and small,
    All things wise and wonderful:
    The Lord God made them all.
  • He gave us eyes to see them,
    And lips that we might tell
    How great is God Almighty,
    Who has made all things well.

Hymn: The Burial of Moses

  • By Nebo’s lonely mountain,
    On this side Jordan’s wave,
    In a vale in the land of Moab,
    There lies a lonely grave.
  • This was the truest warrior
    That ever buckled sword;
    This the most gifted poet
    That ever breathed a word;
    And never earth’s philosopher
    Traced with his golden pen
    On the deathless page truths half so sage
    As he wrote down for men.
