Where there is hate, may we sow love;
Where there is hurt, may we forgive;
Where there is strife, may we make one.
Where all is gloom, may we sow hope;
Where all is night, may we sow light;
Where all is tears, may we sow joy.
To be consoled, but to console,
Nor look to understanding hearts,
But look for hearts to understand.
But seek to love unselfishly,
For in our giving we receive,
And in forgiving are forgiven.
