THE PRAYER OF SAINT FRANCIS

O Lord, make me an instrument of Thy 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 sorrow, joy

Oh Divine Master, grant that I may not 
so much seek to be consoled as to console
to be understood as to understand and
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
