Subject: Mudcat CD Rose: St. Somebody's Song - Susan of CA
St. Somebody's Song  ( lyrics:Sue Jordan; music: Sue Jordan & Keith Johnson ©2000)
Susan of California (Sue Jordan) - vocals; Keith Johnson - guitar; Dan Riddle - harmonica

This song is based on an old prayer, "The Breastplate of St. Patrick."  We heard it on a short lived TV show called Nothing Sacred.  I messed around with the main lyrics, Keith messed around with the echo, & we both came up with the music.  I very much like the son/ sun part.  I also like the weaving of the two parts, & how we switch back and forth.  I hope people like the song! - Susan (Jordan) from California  (corky@pe.net)



I bind myself today to the virtue of love, in obedience of angels,  (God's power to guide me)
I bind myself today to the prediction of prophets, the faith of confessors,  (God's might to uphold me )
I bind myself today to the power of heaven,  (God's wisdom to teach me)
The light of the sun. (God's eye to watch over me)
I bind myself today, to the bright moon, the splendor of fire,  (God's eye to watch over me)
I bind myself today, to the flash of lightning, the swift wind,  (God's ear to hear me)
I bind myself today, to the stable earth,   (God's words to give me speach)
The depth of the sea.

Christ with me and before me.  Christ behind me and within me.
Christ to the right of me, Christ to the left of me.  Christ above me, Christ beneath me.

Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me.  Christ in the eyes of everyone who sees me.
Christ in the ears of everyone who hears me.

I bind myself today to the virtue of love,  (God's power to lead me)
The light of the son.  (God's wisdom to teach me)
