Be Thou My Vision – Edens Bridge – video and lyrics

June 22, 2010 by Lynne Lee

Beautiful video – May your soul be restored as you soak up the beauty of the images, and listen to and reflect on the words of Be Thou my Vision, a stirring ancient Irish hymn.

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, Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee, 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 my 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 heav’ns Son!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O ruler of all.

    As I seek the vision for my blog to teach, encourage and advocate for women to find value when they feel worthless, this hymn gives me peace. Let God be my vision, my battle-shield, my wisdom, first in my heart. The victory is His, not mine. Yes, peace in the planning. Obedience in the action. Release in the results.
