You who fear Yahweh, praise him!
All the race of Jacob, honour him!
Rever him, all the race of Israel.
Most high, all powerful and good Lord!
To you are due the praises, the glory,
the honour and every blessing;
To you only, o highest one, are they due
and no human being is worthy to speak to you.
Be praised my Lord, with all your creatures
especially by brother sun
by whom we are lightened every day.
Be praised my Lord, for sister moon and the stars,
You have set them in heaven, precious, fair and bright.
May I bless and praise you, my Lord, and give you thanks
and serve you with great humility.
St Francis of Assisi
