§ Lyrics §

[Solo]
Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart,
Be all else but naught to me, save that thou art;
Be thou my best thought in the day and the night,
Both waking and sleeping, thy presence my light.

[Choir]
Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart,
Be all else but naught to me, save that thou art;
Be thou my best thought in the day and the night,
Both waking and sleeping, thy presence my light.

[Choir]
Be thou my wisdom, be thou my true word;
Be thou ever with me, and I with thee Lord;
Be thou my great Father, and I thy true son;
Be thou in me dwelling, and I with thee one.

[Solo & Choir]
Be thou and thou only the first in my heart,
O Sovereign of heaven, my treasure thou art;
O Sovereign of heaven, be my vision, be my vision,
Be my vision, my vision, O Ruler of all.
