praised, my Lord, with all Your creatures,
By whom You bring us the day and who brings us the light;
Fair is he and shines with a very great splendor...
praised, my Lord, for Sister Moon and the stars, which you
have set clear and lovely in heaven.
praised, my Lord, for Brother Wind, and for air and cloud,
calms and all weather...
praised, my Lord, for Sister Water, who is very useful and
humble and precious and clean.
praised my Lord for Brother Fire, through whom You give
us light in darkness, and he is bright and pleasant and
very mighty and strong.
praised, my Lord, for our Sister Mother Earth, who sustains
us and keep us, and brings forth fruits and flowers of many
colors and leaves...
and bless my Lord, and thank Him,
And serve Him with great humility.
