Make Me An Instrument of Thy Peace

The Prayer of St. Francis 

Lord make me an instrument of thy peace, 

Where there is hatred let me so love. 

Where there is injury, pardon 

Where there is doubt, faith 

Where there is despair, hope 

And where there is darkness, light. 

Where there is sadness, sadness joy. 

Oh 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’s in giving that we receive 

And it’s in pardoning that we are pardoned. 

And it’s in dying that we are born into eternal light. 

Oh, Lord make me an instrument, make me an instrument 

Of thy peace, of thy peace.
