The Praises of God

Saint Francis at prayerYou are holy, Lord, the only God
And your deeds  are wonderful.
You are strong, you are great.
You are the Most High, you are almighty.

You, holy Father, are King of heaven and earth.
You are Three and One, Lord God, all good.

You are good, all good, supremely good,
Lord God, living and true.

You are love, you are wisdom.
You are humility, you are endurance.

You are rest, you are peace.
You are joy and gladness.

You are justice and moderation.
You are all our riches and you suffice for us.

You are beauty, you are gentleness.
You are our protector, you are our guardian and defender.

You are courage, you are our haven and our hope.
You are our faith,  you are our great consolation.

You are our eternal life, great and wonderful Lord,
God almighty, merciful Saviour.  Amen.
