Be Thou My Vision


Verse: 1

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.

Verse: 2

Be Thou my Wisdom, and 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.

Verse: 3

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.

Verse: 4

High King of heaven, my victory won,

May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heav’ns Sun!

Heart of my own heart, whatever be fall,

Still be my Vision, O Ruler of All.
