Sacred Creation (Rufino Zaragoza)



Refrain
Sacred the land, sacred the water,
sacred the sky, holy and true.
Sacred all life, sacred each other;
all reflect God who is good.
1. All praise be yours through Brother Sun,
bearing a likeness of you, Most High One.
Sister Moon and Stars who are precious,
splendid, ride your glorious sky.

2. Brother Wind and Air that pervades,
vary their moods to sustain all you've made.
Sister Water, useful and pure,
lowly, freely sharing her life.

3. Through Brother Fire you brighten the night,
strong and robust yet playful and bright.
Sister Earth, our mother who nurtures,
feeding, yielding flower and herb.

Final Refrain
Sacred the land, sacred the water,
sacred the sky, holy and true.
Sacred all life, sacred each other;
all reflect God who is good;
all reflect God, all reflect God.
Text: Based on "The Canticle of Brother Sun," by Francis of Assisi (1182-1226),
adapted by Rufino Zaragoza (1990)

Music: Rufino Zaragoza (1990)

  1. Thank you very much for the song! It brings me back in time when I was there and with the Franciscan culture!
