CANTICLE OF THE SUN

D A Bm
Be praised, my Lord, through Brother Sun,
G D A
who brings the light of day;
G D A D Bm A
He’s beautiful and radiant, like you!
Be praised, my Lord, through Sister Moon
Through all her sister stars
They’re luminous and wonderful, like you!
G A D G D A
I praise and bless You Lord, and give a grateful heart,
G A D G D A
To serve and love You Lord in humility and joy.

Be praised, my Lord, through Brother Wind
And Sister Cloud and Storm,
They bring flowers from Mother Earth for you.
Be praised, my Lord, through Brother Bird,
You gave him wings to fly
He sings with joy and soars up high for you.

Through Sister Water, Lord, be praised,
She’s humble, useful, too
She’s precious, clear and pure, O Lord, like you.
Be praised, my Lord, through Brother Fire,
Whose beauty glows at night
He’s cheerful, powerful, and strong, like you.

Be praised through all those who forgive,
The patient, kind and brave
Enduring suffering, trial, and pain, like you.
Be praised, my Lord, through Sister Death
Who will embrace all life,
And carry us up to the arms of you.
