Make me a channel of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me bring love.
Where there is injury, let me bring pardon.
Where there is discord, let me bring union.
Where there is error, let me bring truth.
Where there is doubt, let me bring faith.
Where there is despair, let me bring hope.
Where there is darkness, let me bring light.
Where there is sadness, let me bring joy.
Make me a channel of your peace.
O Great Spirit, let me not seek as much
To be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love with all my soul.
For it is in giving that one receives;
It is in self-forgetting that one finds;
It is in pardoning that one is pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
