Own translation of the prayer from the original French.



make me an instrument of your peace
i will bring love to where there is hate
forgiveness to where there is insult
union to where there is division
truth to where there is error
faith to where there is doubt
hope to where there is despair
and joy to where there is sadness
o master:
i will not want to be consoled
as much as to console
i will not want to be understood
as much as to understand
and i will not want to be loved
as much as to love
for my reward will be in giving
my discovery will be in forgetting
my atonement will be in forgiving
and my eternal life will be in dying
