Arranged for Trombone Quintet, "Be Thou My Vision" (Old Irish: Rop tú mo baile or Rob tú mo bhoile) is a traditional hymn from Ireland. The most well known English version, with some minor variations, was translated by Eleanor Hull and published in 1912. In 1919, the lyrics were set to the tune of the Irish folk tune "Slane", to which the song is sung to this day, both in English and Irish. The song dates from at least the eighth century, though it has often been attributed to the sixth-century Irish Christian poet Saint Dallan.

The original Old Irish text, "Rop tú mo Baile" is often attributed to Saint Dallán Forgaill in the 6th century. The text had been a part of Irish monastic tradition for centuries before its setting to music. It was translated from Old Irish into English by Mary Elizabeth Byrne, M.A., in Ériu (the journal of the School of Irish Learning), in 1905. The English text was first versified by Eleanor Hull, in 1912, and is now the most common text used.

Be Thou My Vision is a traditional Irish hymn the words of which are often attributed to Dallán Forgaill the sixth century Irish poet, the music was added by the Welsh composer David Evans in the 1927 and is based on the music of the Irish folk song ’Slane’ which is believed to possibly date back as far as the fifth century and is about St. Patrick defying the pagan King Lóegaire of Tara by lighting candles on Easter Eve.
