'Be Thou My Vision' The Petersens Give Classic Hymn A Bluegrass Makeover

Enjoy the bluegrass sounds of The Petersens as they perform ‘Be Thou My Vision.’

This 8th century Irish hymn was originally translated by Eleanor Hull in 1912. The version that we hear today is sung to the famed Irish folk tune ‘Slane.’

Over the years, many Christian artists and other musicians have covered the hymn, leading to its growing popularity. Despite its age, the powerful words of this hymn still ring true today.

“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 Petersens are a family band from Branson, Missouri. This bluegrass ensemble has traveled all around the world sharing their musical talents, but you can normally find them at home in Branson.

For ten seasons, The Petersens have performed at the Little Opry Theatre in the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex.

Today, they are performing the classic hymn ‘Be Thou My Vision’ and it’s truly a worship-filled moment.

“Be thou my wisdom, and thou my true word;
I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord.
Thou my great Father; thine own may I be,
thou in me dwelling and I one with thee.”

On YouTube, they wrote about the heart behind the song. “May we never lose sight of what is truly important in this life and where our hope lies.”

Our hope lies in the Lord and we can never be led astray when God is by our side.

Ezekiel 36:26 “And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”
