Sisters of Charity Federation at the United Nations

Who are we to praise thee —
But we call on all thy creation to praise thee —
the birds of the air, the inhabitants of the earth, and the depths of the sea, the mountains
and the valleys, and whatever thou hast made to praise, to bless, to declare thy glory.

Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton
