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 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 Heav’n’s Sun
Heart of my own heart, whate’er befall
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all

    I played your two Celtic hymn arrangements (including Be Thou My Vision) at the church I serve as organist/pianist. The response to “Holy Manna” was especially exciting!

    I recently had a student asking for this piece to audition for his acceptance into a college worship music program. After several searches on the internet, we both came to the conclusion that this was the one! Classy arrangement of a classic hymn…… beautifully arranged.

  3. Holly Kukkonen

    There are many opportunities to practice modulations in this arrangement! I have really enjoyed working on this piece and am enjoying the Celtic feel. There are challenges to overcome yet the music falls nicely under the fingers.

    Purchased this arrangement to play at my niece’s wedding this summer. One of the two songs she especially wanted was “Be Thou My Vision.” What a lovely arrangement! It will be perfect for her special day.

    I searched high and low for an arrangement I’d Be Thou My Vision that felt right. This was it! I absolutely love the Celtic style. It’s beautiful!
