All Things Dull and Ug­ly

All things dull and ug­ly,
All crea­tures short and squat,
All things rude and nasty,
The Lord God made the lot.

Each lit­tle snake that poi­sons,
Each lit­tle wasp that stings,
He made their brutish ven­om,
He made their ’or­rid wings.

All things sick and can­cer­ous,
All evil great and small,
All things foul and dan­ger­ous,
The Lord God made them all.

Each nasty lit­tle hor­net,
Each beast­ly lit­tle squid,
Who made the spiky urchin?
Who made the sharks? He did!

All things scabbed and ul­cer­ous,
All pox both great and small,
Pu­trid, foul, and gan­grenous,
The Lord God made them all.

Amen.
