Lead us from death to life,
From falsehood to truth.
Lead us from despair to hope,
From fear to trust.
Lead us from hate to love,
From war to peace.
Let peace fill our hearts,
Our world, our universe.
Let us dream together.
To build one world
Of peace and justice
Christian Conference of Asia
Lord, make us instruments of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let us sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is discord, union;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
Grant that we nay not so much seek to be consoled as to consoe;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Prayer of Saint Francis
It is only when things are investigated that knowledge is extended;
when knowledge is extended that thoughts become sincere;
when thoughts become sincere that the mind is rectified;
when the mind is rectified that the person is cultivated;
when the person is cultivated that order is brought to the family;
when order is brought to the family that the state is well governed;
when the state is well governed that peace is brought to the world.
