Devotion #15

 

BE THOU MY VISION

 

Be Thou my vision O Lord of my heart

Naught be all else to me Saviour 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 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, after victory won,
May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
still be thou my vision, O Ruler of all.
