I arise in the strength of my God today
He is my pilot, His wisdom guides me
I arise in the strength of my Christ today
He is before me and Hes behind me
I arise in the strength of the Holy Spirit
In the uniqueness of the Threeness
I arise

I stand in the strength of my God today
If He is for me whom shall I fear
I stand in the strength of my Christ today
He stays beside me, forever near
I stand in the strength of the Holy Spirit
In the same power that raised the dead
I stand

I rest in the strength of my God today
His shield protects me from every snare
I rest in the strength of my Christ today
His eye is on me, His ear will hear
I rest in the strength of the Holy Spirit
In my Comforter and Counselor
I rest

I arise in the strength of my God today
His might upholds me, His hand guards me
I arise in the strength of my Christ today
His Truth leads me, the Ways before me
I arise in the strength of the Holy Spirit
In the uniqueness of the Threeness
I arise

Lovely--I think St. Patrick would approve. You've done a really nice tribute to his "shield", and made it uniquely your own.

Lovely poem. Well written. I loved the verse/stanza arrangement. Very creative.
Joanne Sher 07/13/07
I love the parallelism of this, and the wonderful message. Beautiful tribute.

I like it. This is almost like a Triad in the finest tradition of the ancient Celtic bards. The title caught my attention as well.

I like your reference to the trinity in each stanza. I think this could be a song.

This gave me goosebumps. You should be proud. An excellent bit of writing, friend! I especially like the last stanzas of each verse. Good job. ^_^

"I arise, I stand, I rest...in His strength", you say; thus you are confident. Nicely stated! God Bless.

Very nice. I love the phrase "the uniqueness of the Threeness". I feel at peace after reading this. Thanks for this blessing.
