‘Be Thou My Vision’ (J&J)

This is an Irish hymn from some 1,300 years ago, Be Thou My Vision; and here it is being performed in Japan by the Swanson Brothers, Joshua and Jeremy (our dear friends and colleagues).

Sung here by Kristyn and Keith Getty; and I think that must be Ireland in the background, but I could be wrong.
