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, Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.
Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight; Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tower
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.
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.
High King of Heaven, After victory won, May I reach Hevn’s joys, O bright Hevn’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatev – er be fall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.
