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, 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, my 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.

Now to Him who is able to keep you from falling .... be glory, honour, power and authority, before all time, now, and forever (Jude v24&25)

awesome "song"! Where did it come from? Who wrote it? Is it a hymn? I wonder what it'd sound like if we used current verbage.
"Be my Vision, O Lord of my heart,
let all else be as nothing accept that You Are,
You are my Best Thought, day or night,
Awake or sleeping, Your Presence - My Light!"

Nope, it don't do much justice! It's robbed of it's power! A very nicely, powerful, worded piece of praise to our God!

If you've ever heard of a band called Iona, they did a version which is lovely, I think its on the Journey into the Morn album.
