"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.

Chorus
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: “Ha, ha, ha, terrific!”]
It was on the fourth day,
Sun, moon, and stars were made.
He was making a world just for you and me.

Repeat Chorus

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!
Ha, ha, ha!”]

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!”]

Repeat Chorus

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: “Ha, ha, ha! Everybody, now!”]

Repeat Chorus

A beautiful, wonderful world!-[God: “I created it all for you.”]
