1. Circle Me

From the recording Canticle of Creation

The melody I use in the song was inspired by a chant I used to sing in the Abbey on Iona called 'Circle me Lord' by Andy Moss. The words are from The deer's cry (also known as Saint Patrick's Breastplate).


Love with me, love before me
Love behind me, love in me
Love beneath me, love above me
Love on my right, love on my left
Love when I lie down, love when I arise
Love when I take rest, love to shield me
