Thread Name: Lyr Req: Be Thou My Vision / Slane
Subject: RE: Be Thou My Vision -do ya know this Irish Tune
Ireland O'Reilly: "WE Praise Thee With Our Minds, O Lord" in 1975 Baptist Hymnal and "Thy Word is Like a Garden, Lord" in 1956 Baptist Hymnal" are sung to "Clonmel". "I Know Not What the Future" in the 1975 Baptist Hymnal is sung to "Irish". I didn't know these tunes, but I just sang them (sight singing but I am not always too good at that) and find them both pretty good and singable. I have a several hymnals but they are mostly old and do not have tune indexes in them, not even tune names on the pages. I do not find the tunes in Methodist, Presbyterian or Church of Christ Hymnals that I have but that doesn't mean they aren't there. - Philip Hudson
