Be Thou my vision O Lord of my heart




Be Thou my Vision,
O Lord of my heart;
Be all else but naught to me,
save that Thou art
Be Thou my best Thought,
In the day and the night,
Both waking and sleeping,
Thy presence my light.


Be Thou my Wisdom,
and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and
Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling,
and I with Thee one.


Be Thou my battle Shield,
Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity,
Thou my Delight;
Thou my soulís Shelter,
Thou my high Tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward,
O Power of my power.


Riches I heed not,
nor manís 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 heavenís joys,
O bright heavenís Sun!
Heart of my own heart,
whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.


---Alternative verses---


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.
