may i be a channel of peace

may i be a channel of peace;
that where there is hatred, i bring love;
that where there is wrong, i bring the spirit of forgiveness;
that where there is discord, i bring harmony;
that where there is error, i bring truth;
that where there is doubt, i bring faith;
that where there is despair, i bring hope;
that where there is darkness, i  bring light;
that where there is sadness, i bring joy.
may i seek rather to comfort than to be comforted;
to understand, than to be understood;
to love, than to be loved.
For it is by self-forgetting that one finds.
It is by forgiving that one is forgiven.
It is by surrendering daily that one awakens to eternal life.
