Be thou my vision,
O Love 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, Love.
Thou my great Mother
and I thy true Sun.
Thou in me dwelling,
and I with thee, One.

Riches I heed not,
nor man's empty praise.
Thou mine inheritance
now and always.
Thou and thou only
be first in my Heart.
High Queen of Heaven
my treasure thou art.

Thou and thou only
be first in my Heart.
High Queen of Heaven
my treasure thou art.
