Lord, make me an instrument 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
Where there is sadness – 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
It is in giving – that we receive
It is in pardoning – that we are pardoned
It is in dying – that
we are born to eternal life.
