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 man’s 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 heaven’s joy’s, O bright heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.
