Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi
Music by Nilton Duarte
Sung by Lauane Mariano and the Good Will Ecumenical Children’s Choir from the cities of Brasília and Campinas, Brazil.
Violin Solo by Liliane Dias
Conductor: Angélica Carneiro
Make me an instrument of Your Peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow Love;
forgiveness, where there is injury;
faith, where there is doubt;
truth, where there is lie;
hope, where there is despair;
light, where there is darkness;
union, where there is disharmony;
joy, where there is sadness.
O Divine Master!
Grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
To be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in forgiving that we are forgiven;
And it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
