Lyrics

Most High, all-powerful, precious God. 
No spoken word can hold your name. 
Praise be to You who births all life,
with all Your creatures.

Especially you Sir Brother Sun,
who is the day and is your light.
A beauty so true to you,
there you are. There, you are.

Praise be to You, my Lord you are, Sister Moon and the stars.
Bright, precious heaven, there you are. There, you are.

Praise be to You, my Lord you are, Brother Wind and the air.
Breath of Spirit, there you are.
There, you are.

Praise be to You my Lord you are, Sister Water gift of Life.
Pure, essential, there you are.
There, you are.

Praise be to You my Lord you are Brother Fire,
friend through the night.
Strong and playful, there you are.
There, you are.

Most High, all-powerful, precious God,
through Mother Earth we see your face.
You who govern all of life,
sustain and nurture all that is.
With sister Death, first and last breath.
The key unlocking all we are,
there, we are.
