"Make me a channel of your peace..."

This song based on St. Francis' prayer is so beautiful. I realized this at mass tonight.

It has particular relevance for me because I'm currently experiencing an internal turmoil. I won't elaborate what it's all about. Suffice it to say it's school-related. It partly has something to do about the fact that we're having an exam tomorrow and I haven't studied yet (and I promised myself I was going to devote my Sunday to reading my textbook, and I didn't), and partly because I'm having difficulty trying to understand my new classmates.

Make Me A Channel Of Your Peace

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

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

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,
In giving to all men that we recieve,
And in dying that we're born to eternal life
