Christ My Shield

Original music. Based on the prayer of St. Patrick known as "Christ before me, Christ beside me."

 

 

 

Christ beside me. 

Christ within me.

Christ on my right side 

and Christ on my left.

 

Christ beneath me.

Christ before me.

Christ behind me

and Christ above me.

 

Christ my shield from harm and wound.

Christ when I lie down 

and Christ when I rise.

 

Christ in the heart 

of "everyone who thinks of me.

Of everyone who speaks of Me.

Of everyone who hears Me."

 

Christ my shield this day.

 

 

 

A daily prayer.
