Music: Traditional Irish arranged: M E F Shaw


E B7 E Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart; B7 A B7 Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art. A B A B Thou my best thought, by day or by night; C#m G#m A B7 E Walking 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, and I Thy true son; Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one. Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise; Thou mine inheretance, 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 joy's, O bright heaven's Sun! Heart of my own heart, whatever befall, Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.
