Patrick, thee addressing, / We together pray:
Raise thy hand in blessing / Over us this day.
By God's inspiration, / Camest thou aflame,
Charged to teach our nation / His most Holy Name.
Patrick, our believing / All is owed to thee:
Grant that, grace receiving, / We may holy be.
We were wrapped in blindness, / Lost in endless night,
Till with loving kindness / Thou didst bring us light.
Patrick, wisdom bearing, / Fearless, God inspired:
In thy ardor sharing, / By thy virtue fired,
We in veneration / Kneel with one accord.
Teach thy chosen nation! / Show us Christ, our Lord!
