featuring the National Youth Choir of Canada
Francis of Assisi wrote this timeless prayer. Elise’s bluesy choral composition won the ACCC Diane Loomer Award.

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’s despair, hope;
and where there is darkness
let me light the way for joy.
Lord, grant that may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
Dona nobis pacem.
Amen.
