An Instrument Of Peace

Posted on Friday, May 2, 2014 in Uncategorized

photo(1)Last night The Tenors enjoyed time with both TreeHouse teens and TreeHouse supporters. During the time with the teens they shared some stories, took some questions, and listened to teens. They also offered two suggestions.

“Listen…compassionately to others;” it’s what helps the band to overcome the tensions that arise spending 300 days a year together on the road.

Their second piece of advice echoed their own story of rising from obscurity in Canada to become international favorites: “Find something you’re passionate about and put your heart into it (even when others doubt you).”

Later in the evening they dedicated a song to the TreeHouse teens called Instrument Of Peace. The song is based on the “Peace Prayer” often attributed to St. Francis of Assisi.

Note: Though it’s a sub-standard cell phone recording the following will hopefully encourage you to buy a copy of the song for yourself. 1

Where there is hatred, let me bring love
Where there is doubt, let me bring faith

Where there is falsehood, let me bring truth
Where there is pain, I’ll comfort you

Where there is silence, let me sing praise
Where there’s despair, let me bring hope

Where there is blindness, let me bring sight
Where there is darkness, let me bring light

And with these words I speak
Grant that I may not seek

To be heard but to hear
To be consoled but to console,
Not to be seen, but to see
To be loved but to love

For when we give love we will receive

When we forgive love, we’ll find reprieve
It is in dying we’ll be released
Make me an instrument of peace

“I want to be #LeavingALegacy of peace,” is #mysilentscream!
