Well, I’m not going to finish posting this series by the end of the year anymore, but I am going to finish the series!
For the introduction and the first song, you can visit “The Old Rugged Cross – My Favorite Hymns.”
All Things Bright and Beautiful
All Things Bright and Beautiful was written by Cecil Frances Alexander. She was born in Dublin, Ireland, married an Anglican clergyman six years her junior, and wrote many poems and hymns in her lifetime.
This song in particular was first published in her book Hymns for Little Children in 1848. Hymns for Little Children was in its 69th edition by the end of the 19th century.

I love that hymn. When I went to a Christian school for seventh grade our teacher told us the story of some of the old hymns, it was so fascinating.
