Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,

where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.

grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;

to be loved as to love.

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
