St Francis Prayer

I love this version of the St. Francis prayer.

Lord, make me a channel for thy peace --
that where there is hatred, I may bring love --
that where there is wrong, I may bring the spirit of forgiveness --
that where there is discord,I may bring harmony --
that where there is error, I may bring truth --
that where there is doubt, I may bring faith --
that where there is despair, I may bring hope --
that where there are shadows,I may bring light --
that where there is sadness,I may bring joy
Lord grant that I may seek rather to comfort, than to be comforted --
to understand, than to be understood --
to love, than to be loved.
For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.
It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.
It is by dying that one awakes to Eternal Life.

I would like to thank Randy for sending me this version of the St. Francis Prayer which is in the Public Domain.
