Today's Hymn: Be Thou My Vision

Be Thou My Vision


Be Thou my vision O Lord of my heart,

Be all else but nought to me, save that thou art;

Be Thou my best thought in the day and the night,

Both waking and sleeping, Thy presence my light.


Be Thou my wisdom; be Thou my true word;

Be Thou ever with me and I with Thee, Lord;

Be Thou my great Father, and I Thy true son;

Be Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.


Be Thou my breastplate, my sword for the fight;

Be Thou my whole armour; be Thou my true might;

Be Thou my soul's shelter; be Thou my strong tower:

O raise Thou me heavenward, great Power of my power.


Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise:

Be Thou mine inheritance now and always;

Be Thou and Thou only the first in my heart,

O Sovereign of Heaven, my treasure Thou art.


High King of Heaven, Thou Heaven's bright sun,

O grant me its joys after victory is won;

Great Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,

Still be Thou my vision, O Ruler of all.
