I arranged this version of “Love One Another” for my family to play in church. I played violin, my daughter played cello, my husband played piano. The original music is by Luacine Clark Fox and appears in the LDS Children’s Songbook here. Like most of the Children’s Songbook, it is freely reproducible for noncommercial use.
Be Thou My Vision
Be Thou My Vision is one of the world’s most gorgeous traditional hymns. It’s originally Irish, but it’s so beautiful that it’s very well known in most Christian churches, though that sadly doesn’t include the one I belong to.
There are several different English versions of the text. I took liberties with all of them. I wasn’t such a fan of the battle imagery in one verse. (That imagery is fine in a different kind of song, but I don’t think it really fits with this melody.) I also modified the verse about being God’s son. I wrote this for high voice (mine), and I’m not a son.
My arrangement for high voice and piano is now available here.
