Lord, be my vision, supreme in my heart

Lord, be my vision, supreme in my heart,
bid every rival give way and depart:
you my best thought in the day or the night,
waking or sleeping, your presence my light.

2. Lord, be my wisdom and be my true word,
I ever with you and you with me, Lord:
you my great Father and I your true son,
you in me living and I with you one.

3. Lord, be my shield and my sword for the fight:
be my strong armour, for you are my might;
you are my shelter and you my high tower,
raising me heavenward, O Power of my power.

4. Riches I heed not, nor earth’s empty praise;
you my inheritance, now and always;
all of your treasure to me you impart,
High King of heaven, the first in my heart.

5. High King of heaven, when victory is 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.
