Lord, make me an instrument of Thy purpose Lord, make me an instrument of Thy purpose Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, forgiveness; 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; not so much seek to be understand, as to understand; not so much seek to be loved, as to love. For, it is in giving, that we receive, it is in forgiveness, that we are forgiven.
Let my life be a life of dedication Let my vital breath, ears, eyes, intellect and spirit be dedicated to service; Let my love and understanding. my prosperity and my knowledge be dedicated to service. Let the service be made in a spirit of utter sacrifice. from the unreal Lead me to the real from darkness Lead me to light. from death … lead me to immortality. …….. Amen ! (Upnishad)
Each day I’ll do a golden deed. By helping those who are in need My life on earth is but a span And so I’ll do the best I can. CH:____
Life’s evening sun is sinking low A few more days and 1 must go To reap the deeds that I have done. And where there will be no setting sun. While going down life’s weary road And try to lift some travellers load I’ll try to turn their night today Make flowers bloom along the way

O God, Help me always to be happy and cheerful. Help me still to smile even when things go wrong. Help me always to look at the bright side of the things, and always to remember that, even when things are their worst, there is still something to be thankful for. Don’t let me grumble and be a wet blanket. Help me to find my happiness, not in doing what I want, but in doing what you want, & not in thinking of myself, but thinking of others.
