Heart Of My Own Heart, Whatever Befall...

I've mentioned my love for the music of The Lower Lights before; their version of Be Thou My Vision has been on the forefront of my mind lately.

Be Thou My Vision

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.

It is a beautiful Autumn day here and we are soaking in the wonderfulness of it.
Have a lovely week.
