Most high, all-powerful, good Lord,

All praise, glory, honour and blessing are yours

And there is no one worthy to mention you.

 

Praise be to you, my Lord, with all your creatures,

Especially for wondrous brother sun,

Who lights up the day, and through him your brightness

Shines;

For he is beautiful and radiant with great splendour;

Of you, Most High, does he remind us.

 

Praised be to you my Lord, for sister moon and for the stars In heaven you have formed them clear, precious and fair.

Praised be to you my Lord, for brother wind,

And for air, clouds, fair and stormy, every kind of weather,

By whom you sustain to your creatures.

Praised be to you my Lord for sister water,

Who is greatly helpful, humble, precious and pure.

 

Praised be to you my Lord for  brother fire,

By whom you light up the darkness.

For he is fair, mighty and powerfully strong.

Praised be to you my Lord for our sister, mother earth,

By whom you sustain and keep us,

Who nurtures fruits, plants, coloured flowers and herbs.

Praise be to you my Lord for those who for your love,

Forgive and bear weakness and tribulation.

Blessed are those who shall in peace endure,

For by you, most High, shall they be crowned.

 

Praised be to you my Lord for our sister, bodily death,

From whom no living human can flee.

Woe to them that die in mortal sin;

Blessed are those who shall find themselves in your most

Holy will, for the second death shall do them no harm.

All creation, praise and bless my Lord, and give Him thanks,

And with great humility, be dutiful to Him.
