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.
