The Lorica Prayer (Based on the Breastplate of St Patrick)

Christ be beside me
Christ be before me
Christ be behind me
King of my heart.

Christ be within me
Christ be below me
Christ be above me
Never to part.

Christ on my right hand
Christ on my left hand
Christ all around me
Shield in the strife.

Christ in my sleeping
Christ in my sitting
Christ in my rising
Light of my life.

Christ be in all hearts
Thinking about me
Christ be in all tongues
Telling of me.

Christ be the vision
In eyes that see me
In ears that hear me
Christ ever be.
