Be Thou My Vision


I never get tired of listening to (or singing) "Be Thou My Vision." The words were translated from the 8th century Irish hymn by Mary E. Byrne (1880-1931) and versified by Eleanor H. Hull (1860-1935).

This hymn means so much to me because it is not only one of my all-time favorite hymns, but also my heart's desire and my prayer!

Note: Please turn off my playlist at the bottom of this page before starting the videos.

"Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he." Proverbs 29:18

Lord, please give me your vision, passion, and compassion!  Please help me to know You more and to be more like Christ.  In Jesus's name, I pray.  Amen!

I love many of the older hymns. The words are so wonderful. I also love that we can visit many blogs on TSMSS and worship together. Thank you for sharing this one. I also enjoy Fernando Ortega but this version was sung beautifully too.

Happy New Year!

I never tire of this hymn either. I also love the version by Ginny Owens, who is blind. When she sings it, it is so moving. But it's beautiful no matter who is singing it. Thanks for sharing it today.
