St. Patrick's Breastplate

St. Patrick's Breastplate

Christ ever with me,
Christ before me,
Christ behind me

Christ within me,
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me

Christ to my right side,
Christ to my left side

Christ in his breadth,
Christ in his length,
Christ in depth

Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me

Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks to me

Christ in every eye that sees me

Christ in every ear that hears me.
