Track Name: Dalriada (The Song of Saint Patrick)
I was captured from my home and brought across the sea
The sky was dark as were the hearts that’d break apart my family
Are you still missing me like I’d went missing yesterday
Every morn it feels I’m wrenched away anew from you

Upon these hills I was enslaved and told I must obey
There was promised death to those who’d run
And as I lay on freezing ground the stars looked cold and strange
I am a prisoner far from home in a land that’s not my own

There is nothing I can see
That resembles any plan that’s meant to be

Chorus:
But every morn a new sun rises
And I can choose to see the light or turn away
And though my heart is breaking for my home
Help me look to find the good that’s in today

Though when I’m alone there echo stories of my youth
And tales of one who died and rose again
When Joseph was in Egypt’s land he wasn’t there alone
It makes me wonder if I have a friend, who sees to my end

(Chorus)

Lord I know in this wide world my part is very small
Yet in this tale I’ve still a role to play
Though my faith is fragile it’s the one thing I have left
So I will try to follow where your footsteps go, on this clouded road

There is something you can see
That will change me to the person I should be

(Chorus)

Christ be before me
Christ beside me
Christ beneath me
Christ above me
Christ all around me
Christ where it’s too dark to see
Christ be within me
Upholding my soul

(Italicized lyrics adapted from St. Patrick’s Breastplate)
Track Name: The Helmsman
The barque of my life sails along
Amid the dark and shadows of the night
I am sailing 'pon high seas
And I can see no shore

The slightest storm would bring me death
Engulf my boat in swirling depths
If not for you watching my step
At each and every instant

Chorus:
Sail on, sail on
Sail on along
Fear not the storms or the evil one
For God will guide your hand

Sail on, sail on
Sail on along
Fix your course and remain strong
Sail on

Dread and terror does abound
But in my soul is peace profound
Tis deeper than the lowest ground
For souls with you won’t perish

Though hosts of dangers are made clear
None of them are ones I fear
I gaze upon the stars and steer
And bravely on I sail

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Amid the roaring waves I sail
And gaze like a child without fear
Because of you Lord Jesus you’re my light
Thus for the ship of my life to sail
So gently through the screaming storms
You must be my helmsman O my God

And if I reach most dire straits
With waves so high my grave awaits
I’ll then cry out and to my place
You’ll walk o’er the water

Then your hand will cover mine
We’ll steer the ship and tighten the line
All power strength and love are thine
I know you’ll see me through

(Chorus)
