LYRICS

Make Me a Channel of Your Peace
adapted by Peter Amidon from the Prayer of St. Francis

Make me a channel of your peace,
Where there is hate may we sow love.
Where there is injury forgive,
Where there is doubt may we have faith.

Make me a channel of your peace,
When in despair let us have hope,
Where there is darkness we bring light
And where there’s sadness, ever joy.

May we not look for love’s return,
But seek to love unselfishly,
It’s in consoling we’re consoled,
And in our giving we receive,

Make me a channel of your peace,
When we forgive we are forgiv'n,
Love as we're loved with all our souls,
And from our dying springs new life.

Make me a channel of your peace,
Where there is hate may we sow love.
Where there is injury forgive,
Where there is doubt may we have faith.
