The Deer's Cry Celtic Prayer

"The Deer's Cry", attributed to St Patrick, is known by several names: "The Breastplate of St Patrick" and "Lorica" to mention two.

It is a beautiful prayer celebrating a God who lives in us, 
guiding us, sheltering us, and strengthening us: 
It sings to a God who is with us and in us through his Creation. 

In 1994 Irish composer Shaun Davey put a section of the Breastplate to some music in his CD "The Pilgrim".
