Maker Of Heaven And Earth (All Things Bright And Beautiful) - Poem by Cecil Frances Alexander

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,
He made their glowing colours,
He made their tiny wings.

The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
God made them, high or lowly,
And ordered their estate.

The purple-headed mountain,
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,
He made them every one.

The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
We gather every day;--

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell,
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

    My Opion about Ornn is Basically Riot wanted a cool and interesting kit with counterplay except they WAAAY overdid it with the counterplay.

    It's like they looked at the Sion rework, thought Let's make it even easier to dodge all of his abilities and if they do hit, lets make it less effective than if Sion landed his whole rotation!

    It's truly baffling.

    What an excellent piece of poetry! It is beautifully rhymed and highly inspiring. The poem is one of my favorites. Way back in my secondary school days, it planted in my tender heart the love of poetry and taught me to pay attention to details of God's creation. It has enriched my life since then by deepening my appreciation of God's greatness and wonders of nature. I no longer take things around me for granted as I see order and and skill of the Skillful Designer in them all. Kudos to the poet! (Report) Reply
