Prayer attributed to Saint Francis of Assisi

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

Oración atribuida a San Francisco de Asis

Señor, hazme un instrumento de Tu paz
Donde haya odio, siembre yo amor
donde haya injuria, perdón
donde haya duda, fe
donde haya tristeza, alegría
donde haya desaliento, esperanza
donde haya sombras, luz

Oh, Divino Maestro
Que no busque ser consolado sino consolar
que no busque ser amado sino amar
que no busque ser comprendido sino comprender
porque dando es como recibimos
perdonando es como Tú nos perdonas
y muriendo en Ti
es como nacemos a la vida eterna
