St Patrick’s Prayer

The Prayer of St Patrick, usually called St Patrick’s Breastplate, is a prayer for opening the day, and it contains these famous and beautiful lines — though there are various versions of even these lines:

Christ 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 down,

Christ when I sit down,
Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

Amen
