Francis of Assisi (universally attributed)

Saint Francis of Assisi Quote: Most High, all powerful, good Lord, yours are the praises, the glory the honor and all the blessing, to you alone most high...
Most High, all powerful, good Lord,
Yours are the praises, the glory, the honor,
and all blessing.
To You alone, Most High, do they belong,
and no man is worthy to mention Your name.
Be praised, my Lord, through all your creatures,
especially through my lord Brother Sun,
who brings the day; and you give light through him.
And he is beautiful and radiant in all his splendor!
Of you, Most High, he bears the likeness.
St. Francis of Assisi (The Canticle of the Sun, 13th century)
