St. Patrick | Morning Prayer of St. Patrick

We've never done much to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in our house. But we are familiar with what has become known as St. Patrick's Breastplate.

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 man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

I did some design work for an artist back in 2005 (Brent & Celeste) who does an incredible song called Morning Prayer of St. Patrick on their album What I Was Made For that uses this prayer woven beautiful through the lyrics. I have been singing the song in my head over and over today. You can hear it here. May it bless you today, as it has me.
