Jars Of Clay – Be Thou My Vision lyrics

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
Riches I heed not nor man's emptly praise
Thou mine inheritance now and always
Thou and thou only first in my heart
High King of heaven my treasure Thou are
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

    Be thou my vision. Lord, I want nothing else at all but more of you. You are all I need to breathe and live each day to the fullest. Let not my own selfish desires come in the way of your great plans for me, o god. But rather your glorious name be praised and lifted up to the highest of the heavens! In awe of you we stand o lord, and in awe of you we love. Love is all we will ever need, but the love comes from above. Whether I am sleeping or awake, may I think of you always. May you be the song in my life, and the instructor to my script. No matter what comes up in life, may you remain my vision, o ruler of all!

    For me. Intimacy and living through christ alone, not looking to the left or right, belieiving god for who he is and for what he has already done at the cross. On my behalf, god is who he says he is, all truth, every promise is yes! And. Amen! He is. I am! >> my comforter, my king, my reminder, lover of my soul, my redeemer, my savior, the savior of the world, always the same, yesterday today and forever, . He is my very being, holy spirit living in and working out gods plan for my life on a daily, hourly minute by minute, basis. He is my hope and my refuge, he is everlasting life to those who believe in his son jesus. Thank you for the cross my father. Thank you that I am set free from sin. Guilt, shame, and I press on to win the prize, of salvation, eternity with you in jesus name. You will never leave me or forsake me. Amen!
