Irish Blessing

We were blessed to receive from one of our Beacon of Hope readers, this link of the singing of an Irish Blessing. The words are a familiar but powerful hymn with a new arrangement, beautifully sung and set to spectacular views of Ireland. Be sure to watch/listen to the very end because as the song ends, there are spoken prayers in English and in Irish.

We encourage you to enjoy watching and listening, but also to take some time to reflect on the words and invite the Holy Spirit to help make this prayer real for you.

  • Is Jesus Christ the centre of your life today?
  • Do you desire more of Him today?
  • Will you let Him be ruler of your life today?
  • How are you going to live today surrounded by His presence – with, behind, beside, beneath – you?

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;

Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art; 

Thou my best thought, in the day and the night; 

Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my wisdom, be Thou my true Word; 

I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord; 

Thou my great Father and I, Thy true son; 

Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Be thou my battleshield, my sword for the fight;

Be thou my dignity, thou my delight;

Thou my soul’s shelter and thou my high tower;

Raise thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise;

Thou mine inheritance, through all my days

Thou and Thou only, the first in my heart;

High King of heaven, my treasure Thou art.

High King of heaven, my victory won;

May I reach heaven’s joy, O bright heaven’s sun;

Heart of my own heart, whatever befall;

Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.

Heart of my own heart, whatever befall;

Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.

Christ be with you, Christ within you

Christ behind you, Christ before you,

Christ beside you, Christ to win you,

Christ to comfort and restore you,

Christ beneath you, Christ above you,

Christ In quiet, Christ in danger,

Christ in hearts of all that love you,

Christ in mouth of friend and stranger
