I like the "prepositional theology embedded" in the hymn"
Christ be with me, Christ within me"Each of those prepositions - with, within, behind, before, beside, beneath, above, and in - opens an avenue of reflection on the mysterious and manifold nature of relationship to Christ."
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.
