Old English liturgical books give the following Officium or Introit for the Liturgy on the day of St. Patrick: "Behold the day made honourable by the righteousness of our mighty father, who dwelt amongst the people as a bright light of high rejoicing, wherefore The Lord established a covenant of peace with him, the King of kings, disclosing to all men the words of salvation, safeguarded His servant in the midst of royal threats, and He made him a ruler. It is meet Thou hast established as a hierarch on his throne raised up on high, him obedient to Thee, O Christ, that the dignity of the priesthood might be his. For he fought well upon the earth; now he reigneth in the stars for ever." (Ecclus. 45:24, trope "Ecce dies")
