Make it a Peaceful 2010

This one of my favorite songs that is a slight adaptation to one of my favorite prayers-the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi.

I think this is what everyone should strive for in 2010...be an instrument of peace.

Where there is hatred, let me bring love
Where there is doubt, let me bring faith
Where there is falsehood, let me bring truth
Where there is pain, I'll comfort you

Where there is silence, let me sing praise
Where there's despair, let me bring hope
Where there is blindness, let me bring sight

Where there is darkness, let me bring light

And with these words I speak
Grant that I may not so seek
To be heard but to hear
To be consoled but to console,
Not to be seen, but to see
To be loved but to love

For when we give love we will receive
When we forgive, we'll find reprieve
It is in dying we'll be released
Make me an instrument of peace
