St Patrick’s Blessing

May the Strength of God guide us.

May the Power of God preserve us.

May the Wisdom of God instruct us.

May the Hand of God protect us.

May the Way of God direct us.

May the Shield of God defend us.

May the Angels of God guard us

Against the snares of the evil one.

Christ be with us!

Christ be before us!

Christ be in us, Christ be over all!

Lord God, your grace always be ours,

Today and forever. Amen.
