MLB93 Be Thou My Vision (arr. Marcus Venables)

(Song Arrangement) The beautiful Irish folk tune Slane (T.B. 831) has long been associated with the words Be Thou My Vision by Eleanor Hull. This arrangement attempts to translate into music the experience we are going through in being removed from our normal expressions of worship and music ministry. The piece begins with a motif that represents distance and aloneness. As we hear each verse of the melody presented, from a prayerful nature to a rejoicing plea, this motif continues to be present. The piece concludes in a similar style to the opening but offers a sense of encouragement through the lyrics, “O Ruler of all.” Although we may feel isolated and alone, God is with us and we continue to pray for His vision and guidance in our lives today.
