Be Thou My Vision Lyrics

by Jimmy Clifton

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart,
Not be all else to me, say 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 and I Thy true
Thou in me dwelling and I with Thee one.


Riches I nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Thou ain’t always.

Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High of my treasure Thou art.

High of my victory
May I heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s sun,

Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,

be my vision, ruler of all.
be my vision, ruler of all.
