I am Patrick, a sinner, most uncultivated and least of all the faithful and despised in the eyes of many.
If I have any worth, it is to live my life for God so as to teach these peoples; even though some of them still look down on me.
The Lord opened the understanding of my unbelieving heart, so that I should recall my sins.
Christ beside me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ within me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me.
Before I was humiliated I was like a stone that lies in deep mud, and he who is mighty came and in his compassion raised me up and exalted me very high and placed me on the top of the wall.
