Words from St Francis' Canticle of Brother Sun

We Praise you Lord, for all your Creatures

Especially for Brother Sun, who is the day whom through you give light
And he is beautiful and radiant with great splendour !

We Praise you Lord, for Brothers Wind and Air, fair and stormy, all weather's moods,
by which you cherish all that you have made.

We Praise you Lord for Sister Water, so useful, so humble, so precious, so pure.

We Praise you Lord, for Sister Earth, who sustains us with her fruits, coloured flowers and herbs.
