I prefer action –

SunriseMake me a channel of peace,

where there is hatred, may i bring love;

where there is wrong, may i bring the spirit of forgiveness;

where there is discord, may i bring harmony;

where there is error, may i bring truth;

where there is doubt, may i bring faith;

where there is despair, may i bring hope;

where there are shadows, may i bring light;

where there is sadness, may i bring joy.

grant that I may 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 that one awakens to great mysteries.
