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 sadness - 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 giving that one receives, by forgiving that one is forgiven, And by dying that one awakens to eternal life. Amen.
