Christ be near at either hand
Christ behind, before me stand
Christ with me where e’er I go
Christ around, above, below
Christ be in my heart and mind,
Christ within my soul enshrined.
Christ control my wayward heart.
Christ abide and ne’er depart.
Christ my life and only way.
Christ my lantern, night and day,
Christ be my unchanging friend,
Guide and Shepherd to the end.
