547 ~ Be Thou My Vision



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.


2

Be Thou my wisdom,
Be Thou my true word;
I ever with Thee
Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father,
I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling,
And I with Thee one.


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.


4

High King of heaven,
When vict'ry 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.
