Be Thou My Vision (# 33)
Old Irish Melody
arr. Stephen Chatman

Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou artó
Thou my best thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.
Be Thou my Wisdom, 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.
High King of Heaven, after victory won,
May I reach heavenís joys, O Bright heavenís Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.
