God made the world so wonderful

With mountain peaks to hike,

And hills and vales and rocky trails

Where I can ride my bike.

God made the world so wonderful—

The beach, the raging sea,

The quiet stream where I can dream

Of things I want to be.

God made the world so wonderful—

Made sunshine, warm and bright

That lights the day so I can play;

His moon stands guard at night.

God made the world so wonderful—

Made trees with grass below,

And corn and wheat that I can eat

To help my body grow.

God made the world so wonderful—

Made birds with feathered wings.

He gave me dogs and leaping frogs

And creeping, crawling things.

God made the world so wonderful

Then at the end, you see,

Before He’d rest He made the best,

For that’s when God made ME!
