"Be Thou My Vision (Hymnal cover)" as written by . Traditional and Bruce Greer....
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.

Riches I heed not,
Nor man's empty praise,
Thou my 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 Treasure Thou art.

    General Commentboth versions are really pretty...but yeah, the whole thing w/Ginny Owens beign blind makes her version a lot neater. it's so cool to think that she's going to be mad whole someday!!!

    General Commentya, i love pedro a ton, they are one of my favorites, but this is a beautiful hymn, and yes, there version is great, but i dont think it does the original hymn justice, disagree with me if you want.

    General Commenti dont think it does the original one justice either..i mean, i've sang it out of the hymnals and it's an absolutely beautiful hymn.

    this is a bit unrelated, but does anyone know exactly what genre pedro the lion is? before i got really into them i never realized that they had so many songs with religious (christian) focuses..
