Hymn“Be thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Not be all else to 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 great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.”
