I bind unto myself


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

    • I bind this day to me for ever, 
    • by pow'r of faith, Christ's incarnation, 
    • his baptism in the Jordan river, 
    • his death on cross for my salvation; 
    • his bursting from the spicèd tomb, 
    • his riding up the heav'nly way, 
    • his coming at the day of doom, 
    • I bind unto myself today. 

    • I bind unto myself the pow'r 
    • of the great love of cherubim; 
    • the sweet 'Well done!' in judgement hour; 
    • the service of the seraphim, 
    • confessors' faith, apostles' word, 
    • the patriarchs' prayers, the prophets' scrolls, 
    • all good deeds done unto the Lord, 
    • and purity of faithful souls. 

    • PART TWO 

    • 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. 
    • Christ beneath me, Christ above me, 
    • Christ in quiet, Christ in danger, 
    • Christ in hearts of all that love me, 
    • Christ in mouth of friend and stranger. 

    • DOXOLOGY 

    • I bind unto myself the name, 
    • the strong name of the Trinity, 
    • by invocation of the same, 
    • the Three in One and One in Three, 
    • of whom all nature hath creation, 
    • eternal Father, Spirit, Word. 
    • Praise to the Lord of my salvation: 
    • salvation is of Christ the Lord. 
    • Amen.
