Sirach 39:13-15

"Listen, my faithful children:
open up your petals,
like roses planted near running waters;
Send up the sweet odor of incense,
break forth in blossoms like the lily.
Send up the sweet odor of your hymn of praise;
bless the LORD for all he has done!
Proclaim the greatness of his name,
loudly sing his praises"
