  Would I might wake St. Francis in you all,
  Brother of birds and trees, God’s Troubadour,
  Blinded with weeping for the sad and poor;
  Our wealth undone, all strict Franciscan men,
  Come, let us chant the canticle again
  Of mother earth and the enduring sun. 
  God make each soul the lonely leper’s slave;
  God make us saints, and brave.
