Lord, Make Me an Instrument of Thy Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace

Where there is hatred, let me sow love,

Where there is offence, pardon,

Where there is discord, unity,

Where there is doubt, faith,

Where there is error, truth,

Where there is despair, hope,

Where there is sadness, joy,

Where there is darkness, light.

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,

It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
