The original name of this song was:
The Canticle of the Creatures
All praise is Yours, all glory, all honour and all blessings.
To you alone, Most High, do they belong,
and no mortal lips are worthy to pronounce Your Name.
especially Sir Brother Sun,
Who is the day through whom You give us light.
And he is beautiful and radiant with great splendour,
Of You Most High, he bears the likeness.
In the heavens you have made them bright, precious and fair.
And fair and stormy, all weather's moods,
by which You cherish all that You have made.
So useful, humble, precious and pure.
through whom You light the night
and he is beautiful and playful and robust and strong.
who sustains and governs us,
producing varied fruits with coloured flowers and herbs.
for love of You and bear sickness and trial.
Blessed are those who endure in peace,
By You Most High, they will be crowned.
from whom no-one living can escape.
Woe to those who die in mortal sin!
Blessed are they She finds doing Your Will.
No second death can do them harm.
And serve Him with great humility.
A christian overlay on a pagan spirit.
