Be thou my vision, be thou my true word
Be thou ever with me and I with thee Lord
Be thou my great father and I your true son
Be thou my dwelling and I with Thee one.
Be thou my breastplate and sword for the fight
Be thou my armour, be thou my true might
Be thou my soul'd shelter, be thou my strong tower
O raise thou me heavenward, great power of my power
Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise
Be thou my inheritance, now and always
Be thou and thou only the first in my heart
O Sovereign of heaven, my treasure thou art
High King of heaven, Thou heaven's bright sun
O Grant me its joys after victory's won
GReat Heart of my own heart, whtever befall
Still be thou my vision, O Ruler of all.
