Be Thou My Vision
a traditional hymn from Ireland
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, and Thou my true Word
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one
Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art
High King of Heaven, my victory won
May I reach Heaven's joys, O bright Heav'n's Sun
Heart of my own heart, whate'er befall
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all
Be Thou my vision, Jesus…
When darkness is pressing in, may You be the Light that guides me.
When it’s hard to see, may I seek Your face.
When doubts overwhelm me, may I rest in Your promises.
When things are falling apart, may I trust that you are holding me, holding everything, together.
When the future is uncertain, may I trust Your Word.
When I’m sinking, may I reach for Your hand.
When the world gets loud, may I listen and hear Your voice.
When I am lonely, may You be my Constant Companion.
When my heart is aching, may You be my Comforter.
When it’s hard to breathe, may Your grace be my breath.
When my soul is weary, may You be my Rest.
When the days are long and stressful, may You be my Peace.
When fear creeps in, may You be my Courage.
When I’m broken, may You be my Hope.
When this world wears me out and breaks me down and stomps on my heart a bit, may You be my vision, the only One I seek…because You are always good and You always love and You’ve already won.
So help me remember.
Help me see.
Help me really see.
Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart.
