Hymn suggestions for the feast of St Francis of Assisi

A selection of free-to-use (ie public domain or copyright-free) hymns and songs, based on themes from the life and teachings of  St Francis of Assisi, whose feast falls on 4 October.

"Free-to-use" means the words can be copied and sung to at least one tune with no concerns about copyright or performance licensing - sometimes in a limited setting.

Many of these hymns are old / traditional - but where possible a variety of styles and genres are included.

Suggestions about hymns that could be included are welcome: leave a comment below, or email editor@LiturgyTools.net


Nature, creation, ecology, animals, peace, poverty, justice, simplicity.


All Creatures of our God and King

All Things Bright and Beautiful

Blest are the Pure in Heart

Come you Sinners Poor and Needy

For the Beauty of the Earth

From all that Dwell Below the Skies

Lord Make me an Instrument of Peace

Most High Omnipotent Good Lord

Peace Like a River

Simple Gifts
