(With acknowledgement to St. Francis for his inspiration)
Lord, make me an instrument of thy Truth,
Let me know faith where there is no proof,
Help me discern what is right from wrong,
May I be guided to sing only your song.
Lord, make me an instrument of thy Healing,
Help me to love and master the feeling
Of humility, peace and blessed harmony,
May your hands guide mine and heal through me.
Lord, make me an instrument of thy Light
May I shine in the world and keep it bright
Shower the rays of your sun upon me
To banish the darkness and help us all see.
Lord, make me an instrument of thy Power
That I may fulfill the needs of the hour,
Let me take courage and act from the heart
Remind me you’re with me; we’re never apart.
Lord, make me an instrument of thy Law
Teaching oneness and love and an end to all war,
Help me respond to your call of my name
For I know when I get there I’ll be so glad I came.
