Be thou my Vision
Tune: Slane
Metre: 10 10 10 10 irregular

 

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, 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 soulís shelter, thou my high tower:

Raise thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

 

Riches I heed not, nor manís 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 heavenís joys, O bright heavenís Sun!

Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,

Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all!
