The Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

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
And it is in dying that we are born
To eternal life.
