St. Patrick’s Breastplate
Christ be with me, Christ within me
Christ behind me, Christ before me
Christ beside me, Christ to win me
Christ to comfort and restore me
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger
Christ in hearts of all that love me
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger
Canticle of Simeon
Ant: Save us Lord while we awake
Protect us while we sleep
That we may keep watch with Christ
And rest with him in sleep. Alleluia
At last, all powerful master
You give leave to your servant to go in peace
According to your promise
For my eyes have seen your salvation
Which you have prepared for all nations
The light to enlighten the gentiles
And give glory to Israel your people
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
And to the Holy Spirit
As it was in the beginning, is now
And ever shall be
World without end. Amen.
Ant: Save us Lord
Regina caeli, laetare, Alleluia;
Quia quem meruisti portare, Alleluia,
Resurrexit, sicut dixit, Alleluia:
Ora pro nobis Deum, Alleluia.
Queen of heaven, rejoice, Alleluia.
Because He whom you were worthy to bear, Alleluia,
Has risen as he promised, Alleluia.
Pray to God for us, Alleluia.
