547 - 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, 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.

Riches I heed not,
Nor man’s empty praise,
Thou my inheritance,
Now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of heaven,
When victory is 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.
