By Request, ‘Be Thou My Vision’

Requested by Joshua–and on his birthday, no less: how can I say No?–Be Thou My Vision, by GLAD.

This is one of my very favorite hymns–and do you guys know how old it is? It’s from the early 700’s! And still very popular today. What wouldn’t I give to hear it the way it sounded when it was first sung? I wonder what musical instruments they used. God bless those Irish monks who kept the lights on, all through the Dark Ages.
