A Song That Stuck With Me This Morning, Be Thou My Vision

As I heard this song on the radio this morning, I was reminded of how important it is to seek the Lord for vision. I know that through our days it can often times become routine to the point where we get in a rythmn of life and we rely less and less on the Lord through prayer. It is not until we come back into trouble that we shift our focus back to the Lord for guidance. I would like to encourage you to read through the lyrics of this song and be reminded of the guidance the Lord will give if we simply ask Him and seek His face.

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.
