Be Thou My Vision

“Be Thou My Vision”  is a traditional, Irish hymn written in the 6th century.  The author is believed to be Irish poet, Dallan Forgaill.  It was originally chanted by monks, and the tune with which we are familiar was composed much later.  I think fits well with the concept of the ideal, which I wrote about earlier this month.  As Christians, our ideal is to grow more Christlike.  He is the only true ideal, the “author and perfecter” of our lives.  Listen to this hauntingly beautiful song as you begin your day focused on the One Who Made You.
