All things bright and beautiful

author of text

All things bright and beautiful has words by Mrs Cecil F Alexander, while the most familiar tune is by William Henry Monk (1823-1889). Monk was appointed editor of Hymns Ancient and Modern, first published in 1861 and subsequently one of the best-selling books of its kind. Drawing upon verses from the Apostles’ Creed and a particular verse from Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, the text of All things bright and beautiful first appeared in 1848 in Mrs Cecil Alexander’s Hymns for Little Children.
