Christ, Be With Me (St. Patrick)

March 13th, 2012
This prayer makes a great active devotion, as people can do motions corresponding to most lines of the prayer.

Christ, be with me,

Christ before me,

Christ behind me,

Christ in me,

Christ beneath me, Christ above me,

Christ on my right, Christ on my left.

Christ when I lie, Christ when I sit,

Christ when I arise,

Christ in the heart of every one who thinks of me,

Christ in the mouth of every one who speaks of me,

Christ in every eye that sees me.

Christ in every ear that hears me.

Salvation is of the Lord,

Salvation is of the Lord,

Salvation is of the Christ,

May your salvation, O Lord, be ever with us.

Amen.

 

St. Patrick
Fifth Century
