From the recording THE BREEZE OF LOVE
PRAYER OF FRANCIS OF ASSISI
Song inspired by the words of Francis of Assisi
Music by Georgia Carr
make me an instrument of Your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury,
let me bring pardon;
Where there is doubt, let me bring faith;
Where there’s despair, let me bring hope.
Where there is darkness,
let me bring light;
Where there is sadness, let me bring joy.
O Beloved, let me not seek as much 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 to ourselves,
that we are born, born to the Light. Raised to Eternal Life
It is in dying to the self,
that we are born into the Infinite Heart
