Be Thou My Vision was written specifically with the diversity of church music resources in mind. During this work, the choir sings an original musical setting of the text. Near the end, a minister is asked to say a few words to the congregation and then invite all in attendance to sing the well-known hymn. Even though this was originally intended for a church service, directors may also include this work on any choir concert.
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.
