3 June 2011 :New song learnt today: Be Thou My Vision

The video (Youtube) is available here


Be Thou my vision, oh Lord of my heart
Nought be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best thought in the day and the 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
Thou my great Father and I, Thy true son
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one

Be Thou my breastplate, my sword for the fight
Be Thou my armor and be Thou my might
Thou my soul shelter, and Thy my high tower
Raise Thou me heavenwards, oh power of my power

Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise
Thou my inheritance all of my days
Thou and Thou only, Thou first in my heart
High King of heaven, my treasure Thou art

Oh high King of heaven, when battle is done
Grant heaven's joy to me, bright heaven's sun
Christ of my own heart, whatever befall
Still be my vision, Thou ruler of all
