Music Monday#20 Prayer of St. Francis

I first heard of this song when we had to learn it for a presentation years ago. I find it quite beautiful and heartwarming even if it gave me headaches after each time we sang it. LOL!

This is the beautiful rendition of the said song by the world-renowned Philippine Madrigal Singers.

Prayer of St. Francis de 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's in dying that we are born to eternal life.
