Saturday Song: Instrument of Peace

Instrument of Peace

Where there is hatred

Let me bring love

Where there is doubt

Let me bring faith

Where there is falsehood

Let me bring truth

Where there is pain

I'll comfort you

Where there is silence

Let me sing praise

Where there's despair

Let me bring hope

Where there is blindness

Let me bring sight

Where there is darkness

Let me bring light

And with these words I speak

Grant that I may not seek

To be heard but to hear

To be consoled but to console

Not to be seen but to see

To be loved but to love

For when we give love

We will receive

When we forgive love

We'll find reprieve

It is in dying

We'll be released

Make me an instrument of peace

~performed by The Canadian Tenors

The Original English version of the prayer reads as follows:

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.

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.
