Be Thou My Vision Lyrics - Van Morrison

Review The Song (2)



Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart
Nought be all else to me, save that Thy art;
Thou my best thought, by day and 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, 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 armour and be Thou my might
Thou my soul's shelter, and Thy my high tower
Raise Thou me heavenwards, O power of my power

Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise-
Thou mine inheritance, through all of my days;
Thou and Thou only, the first in my heart-
High king of heaven, my treasure Thou art.

O High king of heaven, when is battle is done,
Grant heaven's joy to me, bright heaven's Sun!
Christ of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.

I am sure you have had many emails regarding the replacement of the work breastplate with battleshield, so count this as a vote for the use of breastplate. If you think that battleshield is the more authentic word, please let me know and I will stand corrected.
