Comments:Translation of the lyrics (by Sebastian Schleussner)
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace!
Help me to bring love where hate grows;
Faith, where doubt prevails;
Hope, where despair rules.
Help me to give pardon where injustice is commited;
To form harmony where discord seperates;
To spread light where darkness breeds;
To bring joy where sorrow lives.
Master, grant that I may seek
Not so much to be consoled, as to console;
Not so much to be understood, as to understand;
Not so much to be loved, as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in losing our lives that we gain them.
It is by death that we arise to the eternal life.
