Make me a channel of your peace. Where there is hatred let me bring your love; where there is injury, your pardon Lord; and where there's doubt, true faith in you. Make me a channel of your peace. Where there's despair in life, let me bring hope; where there is darkness only light; and where there's sadness ever joy.
Oh Master, grant that I may never seek so much to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love with all my soul.
Make me a channel of your peace. It is in pardoning that we are pardoned, in giving of ourselves that we receive, and in dying that we are born to eternal life.
This is one of the things I'll be working on for LENT (which starts tomorrow).
