Theme Song

Make me a channel of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me bring your love,
Where there is injury, your pardon Lord
And where there’s doubt, true faith in you.

Oh Master, grant that I may never seek
So much to be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love with all my soul.

Make me a channel of your peace,
Where there’s despair in life, let me bring hope,
Where there is darkness, only light.
And where there’s sadness, ever joy.

Make me a channel of your peace,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
In giving to each one that we receive,
And in dying that we’re born to eternal life.
