Be Thou My Vision was written by a sixth century Irish poet named Eochaid Forgaill. After he lost his sight from an intense study of Scripture, he was nicknamed Dallan, meaning little blind one. It's remarkable that the Light of The World blinded Dallan while giving him true sight in His Word.
Later, the Irish poet was given another nickname: Dallan Eigeas, meaning little blind & learned one.
Would you join me in praying as much for our church family?
We will sing Be Thou My Vision this Sunday. As we meditate on these words, may Christ be our vision:
King Jesus is the exact imprint of God's nature, and He upholds the universe by the word of His power!
Here is a link to the original poem, translated to English by Mary Byrne in 1905. May you enjoy it as much as I have.
In hope that He is your sight & song,
