lyrics

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi / Bless

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


Bless
Aaron Niequist

I want to bless - whoever I see next
I want to give - not just use and forget
I want to leave - more than thoughtless regret
Not gonna run away

I want to give - even when I feel poor
To let it go - when I want to keep score
I want to hear - who is always ignored
Not gonna back away

I'm only a part of the story
But wholly a part of the story
So I'll take my part in the story
Get out of myself
Get over myself
Get lost in the story of somebody else

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
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.
Amen

I want to lift - everyone that I meet
Knowing well - I need them to lift me
Unified - in our humanity
We're gonna pour it out

I'm only a part of the story
But wholly a part of the story
So I'll take my part in the story
Get out of myself
Get over myself
Get out of my fear
Give all of myself
Get lost in the story of somebody else


Prayer of intention. (Genesis 12:1-3. 2 Corinthians 5:16-19. Corinthians 9:8-12)
