St. Francis’ Canticle of Creation

All praise be yours, my Lord,
through all that you have made.
And first my lord Brother Sun,
who brings the day….

All praise be yours, my Lord,
through Sister Moon and Stars;
In the heavens you have made them,
bright and precious and fair.

All praise be yours, my Lord,
through Brothers Wind and Air….

All praise be yours, my Lord,
through Sister Water,
so useful, lowly, precious and fair.

All praise be yours, my Lord,
through Brother Fire, through whom
you brighten up the night….

All praise be yours, my Lord,
through Sister Earth, our mother,
who feeds us…and produces
various fruits with colored flowers
and herbs…

Praise and bless my Lord,
and give him thanks,
And serve him with great humility.
