Youth snatched into slavery

To Irish lands across the sea

Six years to linger all alone

Awaiting call to Godly home

Irish ways and Irish tongue

For when spirit came along

Helmsman for faith to restore

Guides one on to freedom’s shore

From Saint Victoricus Irish talk

We beg you come among us walk

You were shepherd once and now

Tend to your Irish flock somehow

Spirit prepares for everything

Pure message and pure love to bring

Tame and take them as Lord’s flock

Teach lessons from the green shamrock

This ancient tale belongs to all

When we forget ourselves and fall

Prayer in stillness spirit found

In freedom’s island’s holy ground


I arise today, through Thy strength to pilot me, Thy might to uphold me, Thy wisdom to guide me. Christ with me, before me, behind me, beneath and above me. Thee on my left and on my right; when I lie down, when I sit and rise. In the heart
of every man who thinks of me. Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
in every eye that sees me and in every ear that hears me. (from St Patrick Prayer)
