"Be Thou My Vision" as written by Bruce Greer and . Traditional....
Be Thou my vision, oh Lord of my heart
Nought be all else to me, save that Thy art
Thou my best thought in the day and the night
Waking or sleeping, Thou presence my light

Be Thou my wisdom, be Thou my true word
I ever with Thee and Thou with me Lord
Thou my great Father and I Thy true son
Thou in me dwelling and I with Thee one

Be Thou my breastplate, my sword for the fight
Be Thou my armor and be Thou my might
Thou my soul shelter, and Thy my high tower
Raise Thou me heavenwards, oh power of my power

Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise
Thou mine inheritance through all of my days
Thou and Thou only though first in my heart
High king of heaven my treasure Thou art

Oh high king of heaven, when battle is done
Grant heaven's joy to me, bright heaven sun
Christ of my own heart, whatever befall
Still be my vision, though ruler of all

Da, da, da, da, da,

    General CommentThis song perfectly sums up Christianity.

    Anyone who knows nothing about a Christians relationship with God, only has to listen to this song, and they'll know. They might not understand, for the connection cant be understood by anyone who hasnt felt it, but they'll know.

    Its an old Hymn, and Van covers it perfectly, absoloutely perfectly
