BE THOU MY VISION


E                 B7         E 
Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
B7                     A              B7 
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art.
A                     B         A  B
Thou my best thought, by day or by night;
C#m      G#m       A    B7         E
Walking 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 manís empty praise;
Thou mine inheretance, 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 heavenís joyís, O bright heavenís Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.
