This is a setting of chant or polyphony for St Patrick's Feast Day?
"and for all who are Orthodox, and who hold the Catholic and Apostolic Faith, remember, O Lord, thy servants" - yet the post-conciliar RC hierarchy is tolerant of everyone and everything... except Catholic Tradition, for modernists are as salt with no taste, to be “thrown out and trampled under foot

Well, I can give you links at the tunes "St. Patrick" and "Deirdre" which are the ones used in our hymnal, along with the directions for singing it.  :) 

Here is a link to the first tune, "St. Patrick" and the words for most of the verses. Please note that it says that the first half of the tune is sung for the first four lines then it starts over for the next full verse.

Then in for verse 5 it switches to a different set of words and the tune "Deirdre"

Then it goes back to "St. Patrick for the last verse.

The web site is not from my church, but the tunes and words are correct.  At my parish we sing all the verses with great vigour. (There have been jokes in the choir about being at "St. Marks and All Verses")  :)

Well, that's a different translation of the same writing, and I don't recall ever hearing that one sung myself.  I'm sorry that I couldn't be of more help to you. That's the only hymn/melodies that I know.  Perhaps someone else has heard of the other translation being set to music.  :)
