Sinead O'Connor – Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace lyrics

Make me a channel of your peace
Where there is hatred let me bring your love
Where there is injury, your pardon Lord
And where there is doubt true faith in You

Make me a channel of your peace
Where there is dispair in life let me bring hope
Where there is darkness only light
And where there's sadness ever joy

Oh, Master grant that I may never seek
So much to be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love with all my soul

Make me a channel of your peace
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
It is in giving to all man that we receive
And in dying that we are born to eternal life

    Really, a very beautiful song and moves the hearts and brings tears to the eys of everybody when it is sung or heard. Mohan is correct when he says that this song is a prayer in his school diary and that they sing it in the same rhythm. This prayer was originally sung by St Francis of Assisi, (1181/1182 - October 3, 1226), Italy and it is a very popular song in Catholic Churches during Mass and also in Catholic Schools. Now it is becoming popular more and more everywhere because of its rich contents and the music. A brief history of one of the web sites by franciscan-archive.
