Heaven praises the glory of Eternity; its roar proclaims his name. The earth praises Him, the seas praise Him; listen, o man, to their divine words! Who supports the uncountable stars of heaven? Who guides the sun from its canopy? It comes and shines, and laughs at us from afar, and runs its course like a hero.
