Be Thou My Vision

 be thou my vision


Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart

Naught be all else to me save that Thou art

Thou my best thought by day or by night

Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.


Be Thou my wisdom, be Thou my true word

I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord

Thou my great Father and I Thy true son

Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.


Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise

Thou mine inheritance, now and always

Thou and Thou only, first in my heart

High King of Heaven, my treasure Thou art.


High King of Heaven, my victory won

May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s Sun

Heart of my own heart, whatever befall

Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.
