Bí Thusa ’mo shúile

Bí Thusa ’mo shúile is the Irish hymn, Be Thou My Vision, in the modern Irish language. This translation was rendered by Máire Brennan’s grandfather, and sung by Máire Brennan herself.  The original text in Old Irish is often attributed to Saint Dallán Forgaill sometime in the 6th century and was part of Irish monastic tradition for centuries before being set to music.  Bí Thusa ’mo shúile is a type of prayer that belongs to what is classified as a lorica, a prayer for protection.
