Lord‚ make me an intrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred‚ let me sow love
Where there is injury‚ pardon.
Where there is doubt‚ faith.
Where there is despair‚ hope.
Where there is darkness‚ light
and where there is saddness‚ joy.
O Divine Master‚ grant that I may not
so much seek to be consoled as to console;
To be understood as to understand.
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive –
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned
and it is in dying that we
are born to eternal life.
