Be Thou My Vision

Friday, September 17, 2010

We sang this in church last Sunday. The words are so beautiful and true, they are worth writing down and reading, again.

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art -
Thou my best though, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, thy presence my light.

Riches I heed not, nor vain, empty praise,
Thou mine inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
Great God of heaven, my treasure Thou art.

Be Thou my wisdom, and Thou my true word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.

More words and some history about the hymn, here.

Have a great weekend!
