Prayer of Saint Francis

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 sadness, joy;
    where there is darkness, light.

O Divine Master, grant that I may
    not so much seek to be consoled, as to console;
    not so much to be understood, as to understand;
    not so much to be loved, as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive,
    it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
    it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.
