Prayer of St. Francis

204

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;
And where there is sadness; joy.
O divine Master, grand that I may not
So much see 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. 
Amen. 

St. Francis of Assisi
