It is called "Lorica" -named for a Roman coat of armor that is meant for the protection of the one wearing it.
I arise today through God's strength to pilot me.
God's might to uphold me, God's wisdom to guide me.
God's eye to look before me, God's ear to hear me.
God's word to speak for me, God's hand to guard me.
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me.
Christ on my right, Christ on my left.
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise.
Christ in the heart of every one who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every one who speaks of me.
Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.
I rise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity.
