My Old Man

Written by Zac Brown, Niko Moon and Ben Simonetti.

He was a giant
And I was just a kid
I was always trying
To do everything he did
I can still remember every lesson he taught me
Growing up learning how to be
Like my old man
He was a lion
We were our father’s pride
But I was defiant
When he made me walk the line
He knew how to lift me up
And when to let me fall
Looking back, he always had a plan
My old man
My old man
Feel the callous on his hands
And dusty overalls
My old man
Now I finally understand
I have a lot to learn
From my old man
Now I’m a giant
Got a son of my own
He’s always trying
To go everywhere I go
Do the best I can to raise him up the right way
Hoping that he someday wants to be
Like his old man
My old man
I know one day we’ll meet again
As he’s looking down
My old man
I hope he’s proud of who I am
I’m trying to fill the boots of my old man
My old man

All Things Bright & Beautiful.

The words to the Hymn “All Things Bright and Beautiful” were written by Irish woman Mrs Cecil Frances (Fanny) Alexander, and published in 1848, at the end of the Great Famine.

Her words were possibly inspired by a verse from a poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”, quote: –

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

“He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth all.”

All Things Bright and Beautiful

All things bright and beautiful.
All creatures great and small.
All things wise and wonderful.
‘Twas God that made them all.

Each little flower that opens.
Each little bird that sings.
He made their glowing colors
And made their tiny wings.

The poor man in his straw-roofed cottage,
The rich man in his lordly hall,
The old man’s voice, the child’s first whisper,
He listens, and He answers all.
