Susan from California Origins: Breastplate of St. Patrick (48) Lyr Add: ST. SOMEBODY'S SONG 03 Jun 01


Here are the lyrics to a song my husband and I put together based on the Breastplate of St. Patrick

ST. SOMEBODY'S SONG

I bind myself today to the virtue of love, in obedience of angels
I bind myself today to the prediction of prophets, the faith of confessors
I bind myself today to the power of heaven, the light of the sun

I bind myself today to the bright moon, the splendor of fire
I bind myself today to the flash of lightning, the swift wind
I bind myself today to the stable earth, the depth of the sea

Christ with me, and before me
Christ behind me and within me
Christ to the right of me and Christ to the left of me
Christ above me, Christ beneath me.
Christ in the eyes of everyone who sees me
Christ in the ears of everyone who hears me
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me

I bind myself today to the virtue of love, the light of the sun

We called it St. Somebody's because we had only heard "The Breastplate" as a spoken prayer on a TV show, and since we aren't Catholic, we didn't know which Saint wrote it!
