The Praises of God

Poet: Francis of Assisi

You are holy, Lord, the only God, You do wonders.
You are strong, You are great, You are the most high,
You are the almighty King.

Exhortation to St. Clare and Her Sisters

Poet: Francis of Assisi

Listen, little poor ones called by the Lord,
     who have come together from many parts and provinces:
Live always in truth,
     that you may die in obedience.

The Canticle of Brother Sun

Poet: Francis of Assisi

My Lord most high, all-powerful, all-good,
Celebration, light, and all sweet blessings are yours,
     yours alone.
No man speaks
     who can speak your Name.
