M.E. Byrne, E.H. Hull


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, be thou my true word;
I ever with thee, and thou with me, Lord.
Born of thy love, thy child may I be,
thou in me dwelling and I one with thee.
Be thou my buckler, my sword for the fight.
Be thou my dignity, thou my delight,
thou my soulís shelter, thou my high towír.
Raise thou me heavínward, O Powír of my powír.
Riches I heed not, nor vain empty praise;
thou mine inheritance, now and always.
Thou and thou only, first in my heart,
Ruler of heaven, my treasure thou art.
High King of heaven, when victíry is won
may I reach heavenís joys, O bright heavínís Sun!
Heart of my heart, whatever befall,
still be my vision, O Ruler of all.
