[C]Be thou my vision, oh Lord of my [F]heart [C]    
[G]Naught be all else to me, save that tho[F]u art [G]    
[F]Thou my best thought, [C/Eb]by day or b[Am]y night [F]    [G]    
[Am]Waking or sl[Em]eeping, thy prese[G]nce my light [C]    

[C]Be thou my wisdon and th[F]ou my true [C]word
[G]I ever with thee and thou w[F]ith me, Lord [G]    
[F]Thou my great [C/Eb]Father, and[Am] I thy true[F] so  [G]n  
[Am]Thou in my d[Em]welling, and I[F] with [G]thee [C]one  

[C]Riches I need not, nor m[F]an?s empty [C]praise
[G]Thou mine inheritance, now [F]and always [G]    
[F]Thou and thou [C/Eb]only, first[Am] in my hear[F]t   [G]    
[Am]High King of[Em] heaven, my tr[F]easure[G] thou[C] art

[C]High King of heaven, my [F]victory won[C]

[F]Heart of my ow[C/Eb]n heart, wh[Am]atever befa[F]ll   [G]    
[Am]Still be my [Em]vision, O rule[F]r of a[G]ll [C]    

Be thou my vision, oh 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 wisdon and thou my true word
I ever with thee and thou with me, Lord
Thou my great Father, and I thy true son
Thou in my dwelling, and I with thee one

Riches I need 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 heaven?s sun
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall
Still be my vision, O ruler of all
