Your Sunday Hymn: Prayer of St. Francis

Susan Boyle sings the Prayer of St. Francis –  “make me a channel of your peace”:

And here’s another version of the Prayer of St. Francis by Sarah MacLachlan:

 “A short guide to a happy life as written in the famous poem “Prayer of St. Francis”. Written by St. Francis of Assisi in the 13th century. It’s all about Faith, hope, and love…says it all….”

Lyrics: 

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;
and 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
