Divine Master


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;


Where there is sadness, joy;


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;


It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.


(as cited in Easwaren, 1991)
