Prayer of St. Francis

by Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
…where there is injury, forgiveness;
…where there is doubt, faith;
…where there is despair, hope;
…where there is darkness, light;
…where there is sorrow, 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.

For it is in giving that we receive;
…it is in forgiving that we are forgiven;
…and it is in dying (to self) that we are born to eternal life.
