Everything is beautiful

"Everything is Beautiful" is a song by Ray Stevens. It has appeared on many of Stevens's albums, including one named after the song, and has become a pop standard and common in religious performances. The children heard singing the chorus of the song, using the hymn, "Jesus Loves the Little Children", are from the Oak Hill Elementary School in Nashville, Tennessee. This group includes Stevens's two daughters. The singer arranged and tape recorded the impromptu session himself for inclusion in the song
Jesus loves all the children
All the little children of the world
Red and yellow, black and white
They are precious in His sight
Jesus loves all the children of the world

Everything is beautiful in its own way
Like the starry summer night, or a snow-covered winter's day
And everybody's beautiful in their own way
Under God's heaven, the world's going to find the way

There are none so blind as he who will not see
We must not close our minds; we must let our thoughts be free
For every hour that passes by, we know the world gets a little bit older
It's time to realize that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder

And everything is beautiful in its own way
Like the starry summer night, or a snow-covered winter's day
And everybody's beautiful in their own way
Under God's heaven, the world's going to find the way

We shouldn't care about the length of his hair, or color of his skin
Don't worry about what shows from without, but the love that shows from within
Just take a little time to look on the good side my friend,
And straighten it out in your mind

And everything is beautiful in it's own way
Like the starry summer night, or a snow-covered winter's day.
Ah, sing it children!
Everybody's beautiful in it's own way
Under God's heaven the world's going to find a way
One more time!
Everything is beautiful in its own way
Like the starry summer night, or a snow-covered winter's day...
