St Patricks Day - Monday of Holy Week


Christ Beside Me

Christ beside me, Christ before me,
Christ behind me King of my heart;
Christ within me, Christ below me,
Christ above me never to part.

Christ on my right hand, Christ on my left hand,
Christ all around me shield in strife;
Christ in my sleeping, Christ in my sitting,
Christ in my rising light of my life.

Christ beside me, Christ before me,
Christ behind me King of my heart;
Christ within me, Christ below me,
Christ above me never to part.

This brings back fond memories of a child singing this in School for St. Patrick's day.

I love this! I remember most at Easter Vigil...it is a nice reminder as the Triduum starts since sadly I wont make services. Little Miss Bernadette is not wanting to stay with a sitter :( Thanks the reflection and fond memory...
