Creative Quotations from . . .
Cecil Frances Alexander
(1818-1895) born on
Irish poet. Poet and hymn writer, born in Co Wicklow, E Ireland.
All things bright and beautiful
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

Once in royal David's city
Stood a lowly cattle shed,
Where a Mother laid her Baby
In a manger for His bed:
Mary was that Mother mild,
Jesus Christ her little Child.
There is a green hill far away,
Without a city wall,
Where the dear Lord was crucified,
Who died to save us all.
The rich man in his castle,
the poor man at his gate,
God made them, high or lowly,
and ordered their estate.
When the friends we love the best
Lie in their churchyard bed,
We must not cry to bitterly
Over the happy dead.
