Yeah, I've posted this prayer before.

But the day calls for it.

Prayer of Saint Francis:

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.


Two music pieces based on it:

Yes.

It was our 2nd communion hymn this morning. One of my very favorites to play on the flute, but also to sing. I truly almost cry when I get into either.

Another one, because you can't have too few versions of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZI1Gst7pEqc

Sarah McLachlan also sang a nice piece based on it:
