Sequences in Honor of Saint Francis - 354 

Heresy is now convinced
How blind it is.

  1. Leprosy is gone;
    the lame Leap, and fevers fly away;
    Many kingdoms stand amazed
    At all these things.
  2. Sultan’s favors and rough
    Places he spurned,
    and yet Was by him unscathed,
    Unhappy race.
  3. The wounds he has show forth
    Gifts of a newer kind,
    Bestowed by that Son
    The Virgin bore.
