Make us worthy Lord to serve others throughout the world,
For in serving others we are serving You Lord Jesus
Touch our heart with all those who live & die in poverty & hunger.
Give them through our hands, this day, their daily bread
By Your understanding love give them Your peace & joy.
Lord, make us a channel of Your peace
That where there is hatred We may bring love,
That where there is wrong, We may bring the spirit of forgiveness,
That where there is discord, we may bring harmony,
That where there is error we may bring truth,
That where there is doubt we may bring faith,
That where there is despair We may bring hope,
That where there are shadows we may bring light,
That where there is sadness we may bring joy.
Lord, grant that we 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 forgetting self that we find Christ’s life
It is by forgiving that we understand the depths of forgiveness
it is by dying that we awaken to eternal life.
