This item is no longer our publication
This warm, lyrical blessing is based upon an ancient Celtic prayer: "Christ be beside me." Changing key and meter after the gentle opening, the traditional hymn, "Holy Manna," is heard, the perfect response: "Christ all around me - Shield in my strife." Easily taught, a joy to sing, both as an anthem and a benediction. For Ascension, Eastertide, Lent, Pentecost and general occasions. Suggested scriptures: Psalms 110 & 111, Proverbs 3: 13-18, John 14: 15-31, Ephesians 3: 14-21, Colossians 3: 12-17
