Lord..,
make me an…
instrument…
of your 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..!
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 pardoning…
that we are pardoned..;
and it is in dying…
that we are born
to eternal life..!
Amen

Reprise: This song, which is actually a Prayer ( The Prayer of St Francis of Assisi ), was sung by Sarah Mclachlan! This is my favorite song version of the prayer! Back when I was still A Teacher, I would normally start my class with this Prayer. My students recite the prayer in an alternating manner. The whole class recites the first line: Lord make me an instrument of your peace. Then the girls continue on with: Where there is hared. The boys will answer back with: Let me sow love! This continues on until the line: Where there is sadness: joy! The whole class once again recite in unison: O Divine Master grant that I may not so much seek! Then again the girls continue with: To be consoled. Then the boys answer back with: as to console. This continues until: To be loved: as to love. Then the whole class again recites: For it is in giving that we receive, up until the last line. Then everyone ends the prayer with: Amen! I have a strong connection with this prayer as it is a prayer about humbling one’s self before GOD! It is also a prayer about not losing hope and wanting all negative to turn into something great and positive! It is also a prayer about acknowledging the undeniable fact that: It is only through GOD that we can really be born to eternal life! This would be my weekend song for everyone, specially to: all my Former Students! I also wish to offer this song to Pong of Mizpah. I pray that your Mom gets well! If you want to hear the song just click on the title: PRAYER OF ST FRANCIS !
