Be Thou My Vision

Be Thou My Vision is a Christian hymn from Ireland. Jacque @ Seeking Rest in the Ancient Paths shared the history of the beautiful Irish song in a recent post. I love Celtic music and had to pass it on. My sweet Grandmother was a Nelson, Scot-Irish heritage (protestant Presbyterian, Lowland Scots).

  1. Hello there. I love that song. It is so powerful and so true. Just thinking about the words… wishing more people were saying “be thou my vision o Lord”.. and trying to do it myself.

    Hahaa… sorry about taking your blog title. LOL I had wanted to do “my heart speaks” but it was already taken, and then I was thinking and thinking and suddenly “a pondering heart” came to mind and then mom told me about Luke 2:19 so I decided that’s what I wanted.

    A “name contest” will be fun… I already thought of some…

    It was a great pleasure having you stop by my blog. Thank you! I posted the carnival, with your links included.

    Blessings!

  2. I love that song, too. I must have some Irish blood because I have red hair, but my heredity is somewhat obscure since the furthest back we can go is that my great grandpa walked out of the woods into a small town in Kentucky one day, and nobody knows where he came from! But I love Celtic music, too, so I appreciate your sharing this beautiful song.

    Love,
    Penney

    What about something like “Quiver Full” or “My Cup Runneth Over” God Bless

  4. I love hymns. As I have rocked my babies I sang hymns and often around the house I sing them.

    Looks like you are on a youtube bent lately! LOL!

  5. I love that hymn. That is my prayer today. “Lord, be Thou my vision and be Thou my wisdom.” I’m not very familiar with the “Celtic” heritage, but my husband’s grandmother was Irish. I had this beautiful CD of a pianist from Ireland. But, I haven’t been able to find it since we moved. I think the first name was Tim, but I can’t remember the last name. Hmmm…so frustrating! I’d buy it again, if only I could remember…
