Night Prayer

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.
