God Is In Me

Affirming The Classics: God Be In My Head – Book Of Hours

God is in my head
     And in my understanding

God is in my eyes
     And in my looking

God is in my mouth
     And in my speaking

God is in my heart
     And in my thinking

God is United with me
     In Eternal Oneness

Trina Graves – 11th February 2019


About This Poem

I have always loved this simple poem/prayer that was written over 500 years ago! It is also known as The Sarum Prayer or Sarum Primer, and a hymn.

This was obviously a very easy one to update into an affirmation, just acknowledging the presence of God instead of asking, not using ‘mine’ as it would not be the way we would use that word nowadays, and confirming there is no ‘end’ or departing.. just eternal Oneness.

The original prayer:

God Be In My Head
And In My Understanding
God Be In Mine Eyes
And In My Looking
God Be In My Mouth
And In My Speaking
God Be At Mine End
And At My Departing
(Book Of Hours)
