Glory and honor, praise and blessing
To you alone, Most High, belong.
To you, Almighty, full of goodness
Let us, your children, raise the song.
Be praised, my Lord, through all your creatures,
Through Brother Sun who lights the day,
Who, in your image, beams resplendent,
Your wondrous beauty in his rays.

Glory and honor, praise and blessing
To you alone, O King Divine,
Who set the moon and stars in Heaven
Precious and fair above to shine.
All praise to you, for all your creatures,
For Brother Fire so bright and strong,
For Brother Wind who keeps the seasons
And bears the clouds and rain along!

Glory and honor, praise and blessing
To you alone, O God of all.
Through Mother Earth you feed and nurture
All of your creatures, great and small.
All praise to you, Lord God of mercy,
For Sister Water, sweet and pure,
Through whom we’re cleansed in Holy Baptism
That we may pardon and endure.

Glory and honor, praise and blessing
To you, O Judge of Heav'n and Earth.
When Sister Death comes to embrace us
Grant that we all may find new birth!
Woe, then, to us if we forsake you!
But truly happy then are we
If we endure through all misfortunes,
Lord, let us taste your victory!
