I never really consider myself much of a song writer or composer of vocal music, but this song has been one of my most popular compositions.
It was originally written as a worship song and we used it in worship for many years. Eventually it was recorded in this great recording by the Chancellors Quartet and by a few others including a traditional Celtic ensemble from Ireland.
St. Patrick's Breastplate is a prayer giving thanks and recognizing God's protection, provision, and sufficiency. I enjoy hearing stories how the song has been an encouragement to people in times of challenge.
