The Prayer of St. Columba

Be a bright flame before me, O God

a guiding star above me.

Be a smooth path below me,

a kindly shepherd behind me

today, tonight, and for ever.

Alone with none but you, my God

I journey on my way;

what need I fear when you are near,

O Lord of night and day?

More secure am I within your hand

than if a multitude did round me stand.

Amen.

    What a Friend we have in Jesus! Dear heavenly Father who have kept us thus far in life and has revealed Your love and protection to us in so many ways; accept our humble thanks? I pray that you will keep the saints at St. Andrews safe throughout this and every night and to keep them in body and soul under Your tender care during the remaining days before them. Amen.
