Most High, omnipotent, good Lord, to Thee be ceaseless praise outpoured, and blessing without measure. From Thee alone all creatures came; no one is worthy Thee to name.
My Lord be praised by brother sun who through the skies course doth run, and shines in brilliant splendor: with brightness he doth fill the day, and signifies thy boundless sway.
My Lord be praised by sister moon and all the stars, that with her soon will point the glittering heavens. Let wind and air and cloud and calm and weathers all, repeat the psalm.
By sister water be thou blessed, most humble, useful, precious chaste; be praised by brother fire: jocund is he, robust and bright, and strong to lighten all the night.
By mother earth my Lord be praised; governed by Thee she has upraised what for our life is needful. Sustained by thee, through every hour, she bringeth forth fruit, herb and flower.
My Lord be praised by those who prove in free forgivingness their love, nor shrink from tribulation. Happy who peaceably endure; with Thee, Lord, their reward is sure.
For death our sister, praised be, from whom no one alive can flee. Woe to the unprepared! But blest be they who do thy will and follow Thy commandments still.
Most High, omnipotent good Lord, to Thee be ceaseless praise outpoured, and blessing without measure. Let creatures all give thanks to Thee, and serve in great humility.
