The track below is for the Ladies in the LOW section who are finding their part too low. It involves singing some bits in your higher voice and missing out a few bits with unavoidable low notes.The only section I've actually changed is on the words "ever joy" (after "where there is darkness")

(LOWS & Harmony)

Make me a channel of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me bring your love,

Where there Is injury, your pardon, Lord, and where there’s doubt, true faith in you.

 

TUNE (middle group)

Make me a channel of your peace.

Where there’s despair in life, let me bring hope

                                                                      LOWS       Let me bring hope

Where there is darkness, only light,

      LOWS   Where there is darkness, only light

ALL:and where there’s sadness, ever joy. (this is the bit I've changed for LOW ladies)

 

TUNE:   O Master, grant that I may never    seek, so

                                                         LOWS: Never seek so-

ALL: much to be consoled as to console.

To be understood as to understand - to be loved as to love with all my soul

                                                                                                LOWS & HARMONY):  my soul, Lord

 

ALL: Make me a channel of your peace. (Low ladies can miss out these lines or sing it higher with TUNE)

It is in pardoning that we are pardoned

ALL: In giving of ourselves that we receive

And in dying that we’re born to  (eternal)  life (LOWS miss out "eternal")

   (Hold on note for 5 counts)                                                 

 

Make me (LOWS join in) a channel of your peace. (pause here) - Your  - peace
