Lord, make me an instrument of thy Peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow Love.
Where there is injury, thy Pardon, Lord.
Where there is doubt, let there be Faith.

Oh Lord, make me an instrument of thy Peace.
Where there is despair, let me bring Hope.
Where there is darkness, let there be Light.
Where there is sadness, let there be 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.

Lord, make me an instrument of thy Peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow Love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned.

And it's in dying that we are born
To eternal life, to eternal life.
Lord, make me an instrument of thy Peace.
An instrument of thy Peace. Amen.

    The song says that lord make us an instrument of thy peace...
    And he wants that there's no fight will happen in this world that he gave to us.. And he wants us to become respectful,friendly,kindly,and helpful
    So that our world becomes.. Freedom and peaceful!

    I have a dear uncle francis, he is also my godfather, although he went to heaven july 1,2010 at age 91 i speak of him in the present i feel that he is always with me. The lyrics describe how my uncle lived his life. There was never a harsh word spoken of him. I often pray to be more like him.
