Be Thou My Vision

Probably my favorite hymn ever.

I have set the Lord always before me;
    because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken.

Therefore my heart is glad, and my whole being rejoices;
    my flesh also dwells secure.
You make known to me the path of life;

    in your presence there is fullness of joy;
    at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
~Psalm 16:8-9, 11

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.

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, my victory won.
May I reach heaven’s joys, O bright heaven’s sun.
Heart of my own heart whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.
