mactheturk Lyr Req: Canticle of St Francis/Make Me a Channel (47) Song of Saint Francis?? 03 Jul 00

Does anyone know a song version for the Prayer of Saint Francis? It may be known by the title "Make Me A Channel of Your Peace". I will post the words here in the hopes that someone knows a source for the melody or an alternative lyric.

Make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred let me sow love,
Where there is injury let me sow pardon,
Where there is doubt, faith,
Where there is despair, hope,
Where there is darkness, light,
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Lord, grant that I may not seek so much
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 forgiving that we are forgiven
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Thanks for the help, Mac
