I set the keeping of Christ about thee;
I send the guarding of the Great Light with thee,
To possess thee, to protect thee,
From death, from danger, from loss.
The peace of Christ is with thee, and his own loving
arm is around thee.
The aiding of the True Spirit is with thee, and his fiery
sword protects thee,
The shield of the Living God is over thee,
Now, and always, wherever thou goest,
Now, and always, wherever thou farest.
- Stephen R. Lawhead
