Canticle of the Creatures

The Canticle of the Creatures

Lord above, source of all goodness:

praise, glory and honour and blessing.

You alone are God, unnameable

to all your created people.

Praise You, my beloved Maker,

especially Brother Sun, bringer of day

whose light is radiant and beautiful,

so like You, beloved of us all.

Praise You, in Sister Moon, and her stars

formed in clarity, precious jewels of night.
