Translation:

God’s will be done.

God of Providence,
You who have never failed us,
Be blessed now and always.
You created all things with an eternal love,
For our greater good You gave them to us;

The bird, our brother, does not sow nor harvest;
Though for him to be fed, oh Lord, You provide.
A simple lily, a tiny flower,
Surpasses the splendor of the great King Solomon.

God of Providence,
You who have never failed us,
Be blessed now and always.

Why must we worry of the things to come?
Why so many concerns for our future?
God of Providence, Master of the Universe,
You give to your children more than is needed…

Note: The French text of this piece was inspired by the words of Saint Mother Théodore Guérin (1798–1856), the foundress of the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, and also of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College in Indiana.
