Make Me A Channel of Thy Peace

Lord, make me a channel of thy peace;

that where there is hatred,

I may bring love;

that where there is wrong,

I may bring the spirit of forgiveness;

that where there is discord,

I may bring harmony;

that where there is error,

I may bring truth;

that where there is doubt, I may bring faith;

that where there is despair, I may bring hope;

that where there are shadows, I may bring light;

that where there is sadness, I may bring joy.

Lord, grant that I may seek rather to

comfort than to be comforted;

to understand, than to be understood;

to love, than to be loved.

For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.

It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.

It is by dying that one awakens to eternal life.
