Another BIG favorite

This hymn is a great favorite of mine. Definitely another goosebumper.
I like it best acapella, but I would also like it with Irish-sounding accompaniment.


Be Thou my Vision, O 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 Wisdom, and 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 battle Shield, Sword for the fight;Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tower:Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

Riches I heed 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.


Blessings and Joy,
Rhonda

Rhonda, this is one of my hubby's favorite hymns. He also loves Jesus Paid It All. He plays the guitar and I hear him playing these often.

Definitely one of my favorites, too! I think we wore out a tape with this one on it by the Marshalls!

I've always loved this one. There's nothing like a good, old Hymn. *Ü*

A wonderful hymn. We haven't sung it for a while. I may have to drop some hints, lol. ;o)
