The Praises of God from Saint Francis

Posted in Ancient Prayers, Classic Prayers at 2:43 am by davebayne

You are holy, Lord, the only God,
and your deeds are wonderful.
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 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 hope.
You are our faith, our greatest consolation.
You are our eternal life, great and wonderful Lord,
God almighty, merciful Saviour.

~ St. Francis of Assisi (abridged)
Taken from: The Book of a Thousand Prayers compiled by Angela Ashwin
