[quote] Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

St Francis of Assisi

St Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
where there is hatred let me sow peace,
where there is injury let me sow pardon,
where there is doubt let me sow faith,
where there is despair let me give hope,
where there is darkness let me give light,
where there is sadness let me give joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not try to be comforted but to comfort,
not try to be understood but to understand,
not try to be loved but to love.
Because 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.


Tuhan, jadikanlah aku pembawa damai,
Bila terjadi kebencian, jadikanlah aku pembawa damai,
Bila terjadi penghinaan, jadikanlah aku pembawa pengampunan,
Bila terjadi perselisihan, jadikanlah aku pembawa kerukunan,
Bila terjadi kebimbangan, jadikanlah aku pembawa kepastian,
Bila terjadi kesesatan, jadikanlah aku pembawa kebenaran,
Bila terjadi kesedihan, jadikanlah aku sumber kegembiraan,
Bila terjadi kegelapan, jadikanlah aku pembawa terang,

Tuhan semoga aku ingin
menghibur dari pada dihibur,
memahami dari pada dipahami,
mencintai dari pada dicintai,
sebab dengan memberi aku menerima,
dengan mengampuni aku mengampuni,
dengan mati suci aku bangkit lagi untuk hidup selama-lamanya


The Prayer of Saint Francis is a Christian prayer for Peace widely attributed to the 13th century saint Francis of Assisi, although the prayer in its present form cannot be traced back further than 1912, when it was printed in France in French, in a small spiritual magazine called La Clochette (The Little Bell), as an anonymous prayer, as demonstrated by Dr Christian Renoux in 2001.
