'Be Thou My Vision' A Cappella Rendition Of Classic Hymn

In this a cappella rendition of the classic hymn ‘Be Thou My Vision,’ one man beautifully sings all the parts of the song and edits them together for this uplifting video.


“Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light”

The man who is singing ‘Be Thou My Vision’ in this video is Kaoma Chende. He does such a wonderful job signing all parts of the song, and he does it so beautifully.

On his YouTube page, he shares his gratitude for his God-given talent. “I am so thankful for the gift of music! Not really sure how our world would be without it,” he shares. “And so, as you visit my channel, I hope you will find a song or two that will be a blessing to you. I have a lot of fun putting these videos together. Thankful I can share my love for music with everyone that comes across it. All praise belongs to the most high.”

“Was watching this with my 1.5-year-old son. At one point he leant forward and kissed the screen, guess he liked it!” comments one person on the YouTube video. “Thanks, Kaoma, for using your talents to praise the Lord.”

There’s nothing like a classic hymn to make you feel the Lord’s love. ‘Be Thou My Vision’ is an 8th century Irish hymn, and it was originally translated by Eleanor Hull in 1912. The version that we hear today is sung to the famed Irish folk tune ‘Slane.’

Many artists and musicians have covered this hymn over the years, so it has remained a popular one for a while. Despite its age, the powerful words of this hymn still ring true today.

What a blessing it is to worship God with songs that tell of his love and faithfulness!
