1. Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart; Nought 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. 2. 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. 3. 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.
