let me be an instrument of peace
where there is hate let me sow love
where there is injury ; pardon
where there is doubt, hope
where there is darkness, light
where there is sadness, joy
Grant that i do not seek so much as to be consoled
as to console
to be understood ,
as to understand
to be loved
as to love.
For it is in giving we recieve
;it is in pardoning we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life!
