Prayer of St. Francis

I just love this prayer...and want to share it with you.  I know the people in this golden church with thousands of slaves buiding it,  and dying in it,  loved it too...

Prayer of St.Francis

Lord make me an instrument, of your peace
Where there is hatred, let me bring your(my) love
Where there is offense, let me bring pardon
Where there is discord,let me bring unity
Where there is doubt, let me bring faith
Where there is error, let me bring truth
Where there is despair, let me bring hope
Where there is sadness, let me bring joy
Where there is darkness, let me bring light.

Master, grant that I may seek
to console rather than to be consoled
Understand rather then to be understood
Love rather than be loved.
For it is in giving that we receive
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Amen.
