Beautiful, Wonderful World

Verse 1

On the very first day that ever was,

God made the heavens and the Earth because

He does things in big ways,

(Child: And in small ways, too!)

He planned on making a world just for you and me.

Verse 2

It was on the second day

He made the day and night.

The night He called (God: “The dark!”).

And the day He called (God: “The light!”).

Then came all the oceans with rolling waves in motion.

He planned on making a world just for you and me.


All God’s children all around the world,

Let’s clap, and sing, and dance, and twirl,

And thank God for creating a beautiful, wonderful world.

Verse 3

Green grass and flowers came on day number three,

And God must have had some fun

Making all the trees. (God: “Terrific!”)

It was on the fourth day

Sun, moon, and stars were made.

He was making a world just for you and me.

Verse 4

On the fifth day, God looked up at the sky,

And He thought to himself,

(God: “Hmm, let’s see, maybe I should go ahead and create some birds

So that their songs can be heard?

And I’ll put fish in the sea; yes, that sounds good to Me!”)

Verse 5

Right on the sixth day, with His loving hands,

God made the other animals,

And then He made a man. (Adam: “Hi!”)

His name was Adam, and to his delight.

(Adam: “Wow!”) God made a woman,

And she became his wife. (Eve: “Hi, Adam!”) (Adam: “Hi, Eve!”)

Verse 6

After all the hard work of creating everything,

God took a break to listen to the birdies sing.

On day number seven God rested up in Heaven.

The angels all joined in and began to sing!

(God: “Everybody, now!”)

A beautiful, wonderful world! (God: “I created it all for you.”)
