Be Thou My Vision

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; thine own may I be,
Thou in me dwelling and I one with thee.

Riches I heed not, nor vain, 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.

    A beautiful sung prayer presented in a spirit of unity, “when we sing we pray twice” , this reassuring call for protection is so apt for this time of uncertainty, Rath De ar an obair,


    That result took a powerful amount of skill and planning; well done to the whole team involved – a tribute to the Vision of God.
