More than just a song or a prayer

Monday, January 07, 2013

Here is a song from my childhood. This is an old Catholic hymn that really moved my heart as a child. God brought this up in me today and completely blessed me by doing so! After reading a song post on a team thread today, I felt moved to post this also. God showed me today how He, so many years ago, put His desire into my heart. Now after many years of "my way", I have come to seek these words as a lifestyle! It's titled The Prayer of Saint Francis, also known as...Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace. It so much more than just a song or a prayer, it is how Jesus lived on this earth, and I believe it is how WE should also. Here's the link and I've also posted the lyrics. I pray it blesses you as it has me! In Jesus' Name! Amen.

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's doubt, true faith in you.

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
Where there's despair in life, let me bring hope
Where there is darkness, only light
And where there's sadness, ever joy.

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