Anchors Away: the Strong Name

“You have set your glory in the heavens.” Psalm 8
Next Tide” by Aerroscape
I bind this day to me forever, by pow’r of faith, Christ’s incarnation, his Baptism in the Jordan River, his cross of death for my salvation, his bursting from the spiced tomb, his riding up the heavenly way, his coming at the day of doom.
I bind these to myself today.
C’mon, and thank St. Patrick now for reminding us that amidst the turbulence of this rickety world, the anchor of Christ always holds the field for us. Though he reigns behind a veil, ascended far above the world’s riots, we may with confidence that he is ever moving all these things toward the great Day of his return according to the promises of him who loves us.
Against the demon snares of sin, the vice that gives temptation force, the natural lusts that war within, the hostile foes that mar my course;
Or few or many, far or nigh, in ev’ry place and in all hours, against their fierce hostility, I bind to me those holy pow’rs.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!
