A prayer of Saint Patrick
Christ be near at either hand, Christ behind, before me stand, Christ with me where e’er I go, Christ around, above, below. Christ be in my head and mind, Christ within my soul enshrined, Christ control my wayward heart, Christ abide and ne’er depart. Christ my life and only way, Christ my lantern night and day, Christ be my unchanging friend, guide and shepherd to the end. Amen, amen.
