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, tThy presence my light.
Be thou my wisdom, andtThou my true word;
I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord;
Thou my soul's shelter, and thou my high tower,
raise thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.
Riches I heed not, nor vain, empty praise,
thou mine inheritance, now and always:
thou and thou only, the first in my heart,
great God of heaven, my treasure thou art.
Light of my soul, after victory won,
may I reach heaven's joys, O heaven's Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
still be my vision, O Ruler of all.
