This Day God Gives Me

Rising, I Thank You

This Day God Gives Me is set to the traditional Gaelic melody, Bunessan with new words by Rev. Fr. James Quinn S.J was published in New Hymns for All Seasons (1969). The text is based upon St. Patrick's Breastplate, also known as Lorica, a prayer invoking God's protection through the day ascribed to St. Patrick (372-466). The second video features the same words sung to a popular variant of the tune performed by L'Angelus. In the Liturgy of the Hours, This Day God Gives Me is used during Ordinary Time for Morning Prayer.
