Chorus: All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small, All things wise and wonderful: The Lord God made them all. Each little flow’r that opens, Each little bird that sings, He made their glowing colors, He made their tiny wings. (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)

Hallelujah! Moon and stars, morning sun, clouds and rain They all sing, they all sing Lift their voices to the King Praise his name, his holy name Hallelujah! Orchard trees, cedars tall, forests green They all sing, they all sing Lift their voices to the King Praise his name, his holy name Hallelujah! Hallelujah! The fox and sparrow both the wild and the tame They all sing, they all sing Lift their voices to the King Praise his name, his holy name Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Men and angels, queens and princes, little babe We all sing, we all sing Lift our voices to the King Praise his name, his holy name Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Some wandered in the desert wastelands Some sat bound in prison chains Some set out in ships on the ocean Some chose to walk in foolish ways Refrain: Whoever is wise listen, listen Whoever is wise listen, listen Whoever is wise listen, listen We cried out to the Lord We cried out to the Lord We wandered in the desert wastelands We sat bound in prison chains We set out like ships on the ocean We chose to walk in foolish ways (Refrain)

All creatures of our God and King, Lift up your voice and with us sing, Alleluia! Alleluia! Thou burning sun with golden beam, Thou silver moon with softer gleam, O praise Him, O praise Him! Alleluia, alleluia. Alleluia! Let all things their creator bless And worship him in humbleness O praise him, alleluia! Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son And praise the Spirit, Three in One O praise Him, O praise Him! Alleluia, alleluia. Alleluia!

Draw me out with the morning stars Wake me up with beauty Sprout a daisy in the yard Every day remind me Chorus: In your love we are satisfied Only, ever always In the morning, in the night Only, ever, always You wrote the song that is in our hearts Song of joy and wonder Everyday is a brand new start His love, it grows us younger Chorus You’re strong enough to take slow The sun, the moon so patient We wait, we see your mercy flow To every tribe and nation See the beauty of the Lord As the sun expires In one day or a thousand years His love, it never tires

Tell me can the darkness hide me? Tell me can the darkness hide me? Even when the sun’s not shining? Tell me can the darkness hide me? No even in the deepest valley you come find me You hold on tight to me Tell me will you always hear me? Tell me will you always hear me? Even when the storm is noisy? Tell me will you always hear me? Yes even when I’m scared and trembling you come find me You speak your love to me Even when I’m scared and trembling you come find me You speak your love to me Tell me will you ever leave me? Tell me will you ever leave me? Even when my friends forget me? Tell me will you ever leave me? No even when I’m mad and hiding you come find me You stay close to me Even when I’m scared and trembling you come find me You speak your love to me Even in the deepest valley you come find me You hold on to me Tell me can the darkness hide me? Tell me will you always hear me? Tell me will you ever leave me?

Was it a bump? Was it a growl? Was it a thump? Is prowling under my bed? I’ve got a light but what’s in the shadows at night? Will I have to fight, alright, I’m frightened - I’m scared! When I am afraid, I put my trust in you I will lie down and sleep in peace ‘Cause what you say is true You know every hair on my head And you are bigger than any monster under my bed So when I’m sleepy And my closet is creepy I’m trying not to call Mom and Dad but getting weepy I will not fear for you say you’re near So I call for you, you always hear. God who watches over me Never goes to sleep You know me inside out And you promised you would keep me You know every hair on my head and You are bigger than any monster under my bed When I am afraid I’ll put my trust in you I will lie down and sleep in peace ‘Cause what you say is true You know every hair on my head and You are bigger than any monster under my bed

Chorus: The heavens are telling the glory of God The earth declares the work of His hands The law of the LORD more desired than gold Sweeter than honey, reviving the soul.

Bird Song 03:28
If I had wings like a dove I could fly, I could fly If I had a room in your house I could hide, I could hide The swallow nests, she finds her rest There in the temple walls Beneath your wings Your song she sings The Lord God hears her call Like a desert owl in the night I lie awake, lie awake Like a sparrow lonely on the roof I will wait, I will wait We run, we roam, You sing us home We fly back to your call Beneath your wings, your song we sing The Lord God holds us all. Hide me, hide me Hide me in the shadow of your wings. If I had wings like a dove I could fly, I could fly If I had a room in your house I could hide, I could hide I could hide, I could hide. Hide me, hide me Hide me in the shadow of your wings. Oh hide me, hide me Hide me in the shadow of your wings. ...in the shadow of your wings.

In Christ we offer all that He has offered the perfect offering Christ is the life of the world Christ is the life of the world So we remember, all that he remembered The whole of love returned. Christ is the life of the world Christ is the life of the world Let us lift up, lift our hearts let us lift up, lift our hearts It is good to lift our hearts to the Lord. Sent forth in beauty reconciling all things Radiant in holiness Christ is the life of the world Christ is the life of the world Christ is the life of the world.

Lift up your eyes on high and see who has created these stars The One who leads forth their host by number He calls them all by name Because of the greatness of his high might And the strength of his power Not one of them is missing. Look up, look up and see In the darkness we see all of the stars Connect the dots see pictures That whisper of He who made the stars Chorus: Stars, stars, stars Stars to start the world Stars to shout, to shout, to shout, “Christ is born!” Stars to crown him King Of everything, the sun, the moon and the stars Chorus Bridge: He calls them all by name None of them are missing His children they will be As many, as many, as many as the stars, the stars, the stars Chorus
12.
Chorus: Teach us to number our days That we may apply our hearts to your ways Oh teach us to number our days With wisdom and grace, wisdom and grace, wisdom and grace You’ve been our home and our dwelling our place in all generations Before the earth and the mountains were formed You are God Chorus Now the span of our lives It is made of sorrow and labor As the days pass away like the grass How soon we are gone Chorus Let the work of our hands Bring You praise Set your favor upon us Oh establish the work of our hands May your Kingdom come Chorus
