My sister-in-law first acquainted me with this hymn and its alternate setting. Since first hearing it a few years ago, I've wanted to record it--and so I finally have!

While the hymn "Take Time To Be Holy" is usually sung to the music by George C. Stebbins, this musical setting is from a traditional Irish folk melody named "Slane" for Slane Hill where, in 433 A.D,. St. Patrick defied the pagan High King Le gaire of Ta ra by lighting candles on Easter Eve. ... Other folk songs have been written to this tune such as "Lakes of Champlain."
This musical setting is also the traditional accompaniment to the hymn "Be Thou My Vision."
(source: Wikipedia)


Text: William Dunn Longstaff
1822-1894

Music: Traditional Irish melody "Slane"

Wow, this stopped me in my pagan tracks. Despite Paddy being Welsh, he was a Celt and I suppose that makes him okay by me.
Anyway, Myst this is exquisite. I've heard this done many ways but this altogether beautiful.
As they would have said back then:
"Go raibh maith agat" (thank you).

Beautiful, a wonderful song, excellent harmony setting. I've heard several different words to the tune, or to versions of it, but this is actually the first time I hear it recorded properly. It's a treat, thanks a lot.
