All Things Bright and Beautiful!

The junior church choir (in rehearsal) at St John's Cathedral, Hong Kong. Most of the children in the choir are 5-6 years old.

The children in the video are indeed "bright and beautiful" - but their rather officious choir master is a dour intrusion towards the end of the song!

This Sunday, September 23, our Faith Formation program for 2007-2008 begins with a Faith Festival (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Sunday). The title of our Faith Festival is:
All Things Bright and Beautiful!

We'll be looking at the beauty of God's creation and from there discerning how we are called to have the wisdom and will to respect and reverence life in all its shapes and forms.

While the Faith Festival is open to all in the parish, it's also the "first class" in this semester's faith formation program for children.

Faith Festival times are: Sundays, 4:30-7:00 p.m.; Monday, 6:00 -8:00 p.m.; and Tuesday, 9:30-11:30 a.m. Sunday and Tuesday times include a light supper; Tuesday morning includes coffee, juice and pastries.

Here are the lyrics to All Things Bright and Beautiful which we'll be singing at the Faith Festival - you can start practicing the song at home!

All things bright and beautiful,
all creatures great and small,
all things wise and wonderful:
the Lord God made them all.

1. Each little flower that opens,
each little bird that sings,
God made their glowing colors,
and made their tiny wings.

2. The purple-headed mountains,
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:
God made them every one.

3. God gave us eyes to see them,
and lips that we might tell
how great is God Almighty,
who has made all things well.
