stag-at-restGod with me lying down,
God with me rising up,
God with me in each ray of light,
Nor I a ray of joy without.

Christ with me sleeping,
Christ with me waking,
Christ with me watching,
Every day and night.

God with me protecting,
The Lord with me directing,
The Spirit with me strengthening,
For ever and for evermore, Amen.
Chief of chiefs, Amen.
