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 and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, and I Thy true son,
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

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, my victory won,
May I reach heaven's joys, O bright heav'n's Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.



HYMN HISTORY:

The hymn "Be Thou My Vision" is a prayer that may accept Christ as our pattern, our hero, our ideal. Our adoration is told in these names and phrases: Lord of my heart, my best thought, my wisdom, my true word, my great Father, mine inheritance, my treasure and finally, heart of my own heart.

The original version of this hymn was written by an unknown Irish Christian in the eighth century. The tune is an Irish folk melody.

Be Thou my Vision, 0 Lord of my heart;
Nought 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 Vision, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, and I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling and I with Thee one.

Riches I need 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, my victory won,
May I reach heaven's joy, 0 bright heaven's Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, 0 Ruler of all.


BIBLE PASSAGE:

8 But mine eyes are unto thee, O GOD the Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.
