Feast of St. Patrick

Today, March 17, is the Feast of St. Patrick. The following is a portion of Hymn 370, attributed to St. Patrick, from The 1982 Hymnal of the Episcopal Church:

I bind unto myself today the strong Name of the Trinity, by invocation of the same, the Three in One and One in Three.

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.

I bind unto myself today the strong Name of the Trinity, by invocation of the same, the Three in One and One in Three.Of whom all natue hath creation, eternal Father, Spirit, Word: praise to the Lord of my salvation, salvation is of Christ the Lord.
