Thanks John, I love the combination of the old hymns and the mountain dulcimer.
This is lovely John, so comforting in stressful times. Thank you.
"Be Thou a Light" is an edited version of a prayer by the Rev. John Cosin (1594-1672). He was the Anglican Bishop of Durham, England. I love the way that my wife, Anne, is able to bring forward voices of the past to comfort us now. The dulcimer is tuned close to EBb. The words are:
Be thou a light unto mine eyes; be music to mine ears; and sweetness to my every taste; contentment to my heart.
Be thou my sunshine in the day; my food at table be; and my repose when shadows fall; my help when I'm in need.
