The following is the Patrick Compline from "Celtic Daily Prayer"

Take some time to remember this saint who risked his life for the church.

In the name of the King of life;
In the  name of the Christ of love;
In the name of the Holy Spirit:
The Triune of my strength.

I love you, O lord my strength.
The Lord is my rock,
My fortress and my deliverer.
My God is m rock
In whom I take refuge.

I will praise the Lord who counsels me; 
Even at night my heart instructs me.

I have se the Lord always before me.
Because He is at my right hand,
I shall not be shaken.

Into your hands I commit my spirit;
Redeem me, O Lord, the God of Truth.

The God of life with guarding hold you;
The loving Christ with guarding fold you;
The Holy Spirit, guarding, mould you;
Each night of life to aid, enfold you;
Each day and night of life uphold you.

May God shield me; may God fill me; 
May God keep me;
May God watch me;
may God bring me this night
To the nearness of His love.

The peace of the Father of joy,
The peace of the Christ of hope,
The peace of the Spirit of grace,

The peace of all peace
Be mine this night
in the Name of the Father,
And of the Son,
And of the Holy Spirit.

Happy St. Patrick's Day,
Lori Megley-Best
