Canticle of the Sun

Bless the Lord, all you works of the Lord. Praise and exalt Him above all forever.

Angels of the Lord: (bless the Lord.) Repeat after every line.
You heavens:
Sun and Moon:
Stars of Heaven:

Every shower and dew:
All you winds:
Fire and heat:
Cold and chill:
Night and days:
Lightning and clouds:

Let the earth bless the Lord. Praise and exalt Him above all forever.

Mountains and hills:
Everything growing from the earth:
Seas and rivers:
You dolphins and all water creatures:
All you birds of the air:
All you beasts, wild and tame:
You sons of men:
Holy men of humble heart:

_St. Francis
