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, 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.
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 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.
