Lyrics

The lyrics for St. Patrick's Breastplate come from words attributed to St. Patrick, who lived in the 5th century AD.
Christ be with me and within me
Christ behind me and before
Christ to fight for me and win me
Christ to comfort and restore
Christ beneath me and above me
Christ in quiet and in danger
Christ in hearts of those who love me
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger

Christ be with me and within me
Christ behind me and before
Christ to fight for me and win me
Christ to comfort and restore
Christ beneath me and above me
Christ in quiet and in danger
Christ in hearts of those who love me
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger

Christ in every heart that's broken
Christ in every joy and pain
Christ in every word that's spoken
Christ in sun and moon and rain

Christ in resting and in rising
Christ the Lord of all my life
Christ to guide me and to shield me
Christ protecting me in strife

Christ be with me and within me
Christ behind me and before
Christ to fight for me and win me
Christ to comfort and restore
