LEO SOWERBY (1895–1968)
The Canticle of the Sun (32:18)
O most high...
Praised be my Lord God with all his creatures...
Praised be my Lord for our sister the moon...
Praised be my Lord for our brother the wind...
Praised be my Lord for our sister water...
Praised be my Lord for our brother fire...
Praised be my Lord for our mother the earth...
Praised be my Lord for all those who pardon one another...
Praised be my Lord for our sister the death of the body...
Blessed are they...
Praise ye the Lord...
